Lawsuit against Abilene teacher dropped

A lawsuit brought against an Abilene Independent School District high school teacher accused of not telling authorities that he or she knew another teacher was having an affair with a student has been dropped. The case has been dismissed without a monetary settlement.

A former Cooper High School English teacher was sentenced to seven years probation and stripped of her teaching license after a 15 year-old student told police they had had a sexual relationship. If she adheres to the terms of her probation, the offense will not go on her permanent record.

Although the lawsuit against the other teacher was dismissed, the mother of the student has said she is still seeking a monetary settlement.
