A lawsuit filed by four former students in the alternative education program who claimed they were strip searched by teachers looking for missing money has been settled, according to the students’ attorney.
Attorney Robert Berke of Bridgeport said Wednesday that each of the students, who have all either graduated or left the school, was paid $27,500 in the settlement. The suit was settled in June and payments were received this week, he said.
