Daily Times reports:

Today jurors in U.S. District Court in Knoxville found Blount County Schools not liable in a discrimination lawsuit.

Plaintiffs also admitted two of the students had been given the option of leaving their classes five minutes early so they would not be subjected to racial slurs and threats of violence.

Gee, what an option.

As mentioned in comments.

There were several items not

There were several items not admitted as testimony in this trial and I dare say that had they been admitted the ruling may be different. Still, it was illuminating to see that the county school system thinks it is okay to blame the victim, admit that racism exists but they are not responsible for it, and call concern for your child "drama." Also, one cannot escape the fact that an all-white jury issued this ruling.
