A lawsuit against the Utah school district which employed convicted sex offender and former teacher Brianne Altice has been dismissed.

Altice, 35, pleaded guilty back in April to three counts of forcible sex abuse, admitting she had sexual encounters with several of her students at Davis High school.

A couple months later, one of the students who said he was sexually abused by Altice sued the Davis School District.

The lawsuit claimed that the district was at fault for not protecting its students from Altice's abuse. Apparently, Altice has been fired from another job for alleged sexual misconduct before being hired by the David School District.

But a Utah judge has ruled against the plaintiffs, saying the law protects schools from liability when it comes to student assaults.

The lawyer for the student who filed the lawsuit says they will appeal. The suit seeks nearly $700,000 in damages.
