Greetings. I think that she has a weak claim for intentional infliction of emotional distress, although she may have a better claim for negligent infliction of emotional distress. I do know that some attorneys file for every claim they have against a party, as this is required under the rules of civil procedure. It sounds like she retained a good attorney to file the lawsuit and they have determined all claims available to them against you. There is your answer.
