"Koshka Duff was arrested after offering a legal advice card to a black teenager during his stop-and-search.
What happened left her with multiple injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the academic says.
The custody sergeant was cleared of misconduct, and the Met said it was satisfied investigations were thorough.
Dr Duff, a 30-year-old lecturer at the University of Nottingham, does not agree and is challenging the misconduct hearing's findings by way of a judicial review."
