A father has settled a lawsuit with his daughter's Connecticut school district after she was barred from attending class over fears she may have contracted Ebola.
Stephen Opayemi and his 7-year-old daughter had attended a wedding in Nigeria and returned to find that her school, Meadowside Elementary in MIlford, wouldn't let her rejoin her class for another 21 days. Opayemi filed suit in federal court in Connecticut, hoping a judge would order the school to let his daughter return. On Thursday, the parties settled, allowing the young girl to return to school on Friday, reports the Connecticut Post.
What was the legal thrust of Opayemi's suit over this school Ebola policy, and what happens now that he's settled?
