Ooooooooold news.

There's a huge and wildly entertaining back story to this, which rarely gets reported. Like how the girl's parents screwed up the first trial by attempting to sue the judge for failing to fix an all-white jury.

Ultimately all charges against the lad had been dropped when she refused to cheer him, and got removed as a cheerleader, which meant that, at the time, the old "considered innocent until proven guilty" thing applied. And that's why they lost in their bid to sue the school.

Basically, the way the family went about this whole business was very stupid.

Well, that's only added to exceptionality of this story!
