Newmyer's lawsuit always had the potential to rope in some of the high-profile families who knew of the affair or whose children had been in the care of the accused psychologist, James Huntington, who also taught sex education to sixth-grade students during the year one of the Obama daughters was in that grade.
Last April, Newmyer subpoenaed all of Walsh's communications involving Huntington and Sidwell-especially those related to Huntington's handling of a bullying incident. At a hearing last month, Newmyer's lawyer, Kerry Scanlon, argued that the Woodward/Walsh e-mails would show that Sidwell administrators knew Huntington was conducting himself unprofessionally. Newmyer's complaint included e-mails with intimate details of the affair between Huntington and Tara Mehrbach, then Newmyer's wife. Huntington has countersued Newmyer for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress, among other things. In January 2010, Sidwell's staff psychologist, James Huntington, came to Mehrbach's house to evaluate her daughter. He watched her play and read and asked Mehrbach a series of questions, according to court documents. The next day, a Saturday, Huntington and Mehrbach met over drinks to discuss his recommendations. Mehrbach then e-mailed Newmyer to report that Huntington had advised that their daughter needed an enriched curriculum. Sometime between the end of January and the beginning of February, Huntington and Mehrbach began a sexual relationship. Huntington, who was divorced, had a daughter at Sidwell in the same class as Mehrbach's child. They would arrange play dates, according to Newmyer's complaint, so Huntington could professionally evaluate Merhbach's daughter. Huntington even repeated his ex-wife's concerns in an e-mail to Mehrbach: "I said yes," Huntington wrote to Mehrbach. During the course of the affair, Huntington sent a number of sexually explicit e-mails to Mehrbach from his Sidwell account-sometimes in the middle of the workday. His e-mails, according to Newmyer's complaint, graphically recounted their encounters, including oral and anal sex, role-playing, and "manic rubbing and touching when [Huntington is] under the influence." According to the complaint, "on two occasions when a snow storm knocked the power out, Huntington and Tara took his three children and her two children to the Embassy Suites Hotel in downtown Washington.

But Newmyer's wife, Tara Newmyer, said through an attorney that the school psychologist, identified in the lawsuit as James F. "Jack" Huntington, was not treating her daughter "in any professional capacity."
Huntington left Sidwell in February after a decade there, according to the court filing. The lawsuit contends that Huntington was fired by the school's board after Arthur Newmyer shared sexually explicit e-mails that Huntington allegedly sent to Newmyer's wife, some of which were sent over the school's computer system.

Huntington said Thursday that he had "no comment" about the lawsuit's claims.
