Lindy Matsko, the Harriton High School assistant vice principal named in Blake J. Robbins vs. Lower Merion School District as the school official who showed a student a photo taken covertly by his laptop's webcam during a disciplinary meeting, has strenuously denied that she ever spied on students using their laptops.
