A woman and her teenage son have settled a lawsuit filed against the Malcolm school district alleging the district didn't protect the boy from bullying.

Court records say the lawsuit filed in February 2011 was settled last week at the request of both parties. Terms were not disclosed.

The boy was an eighth-grader during the 2009-2010 school year. The lawsuit says the district didn't react properly to harassment of the boy. In one instance, the lawsuit says, tormenters pushed his head into a toilet bowl.

The lawsuit also says the district violated his rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act by failing to accommodate the boy's diabetes.

The boy, who has since left the school, was referred to as John Doe in the lawsuit in order to protect his identity.

I'm glad they settled the lawsuit and hope it makes for stricter anti-bullying policies, at that, and other schools around the country.
