Web update: Girl loses appeal in federal suit claiming mistreatment by Willmar teacher

Email

Because Jackie Nelson filed a claim after she had transferred her child to another district, she no longer had a valid claim against the Willmar district, according to an opinion issued Thursday by the Eight Circuit Court of Appeals.
