BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) – A federal judge has dismissed a racial discrimination lawsuit filed against an upstate New York school district.

US District Judge Thomas McAvoy cleared the Johnson City Central School District of all charges in the 18 million-dollar lawsuit filed in July 2004.

Three parents sued the district after alleging the school district created “a racially hostile environment” for black students.

But McAvoy said he found no indication that race was a factor in student discipline or that school officials created a hostile environment by ignoring racial teasing by students.

School district officials say they’re extremely happy with the verdict.  One of the parents who filed the lawsuit said an appeal was unlikely.
