A sexual abuse lawsuit filed against an Ohio teacher who had sex with a student has been dismissed by a federal judge. The lawsuit was filed by the student who alleged he was sexually abused by the teacher, who then became pregnant with his child. U.S. District Judge John Adams ruled that the statute of limitations on the case had expired when the lawsuit was filed. The teacher pleaded guilty in March 2018 to three counts of sexual battery and is serving a three-year sentence at the Ohio Reformatory for Women.

A Kentucky high school student has filed a lawsuit after he was banned from playing basketball because he is not vaccinated. The teen filed suit against Northern Kentucky Health Department in Boone Circuit Court after a ban was placed on students without vaccines. The school district banned the students from participating in sports and then from attending school during a chickenpox outbreak. The lawsuit alleges the ban “was motivated and put in place to punish the parishioners at Assumption and at the school, for their vaccination beliefs, and not due to an actual concern for public health.”
