School district to pay in dress-code flap

December 16, 2007


— Officials in a Northern California school district might not think Tiggers are such wonderful things after agreeing to pay $95,000 in lawyers' fees to five families who sued the school over its dress code.

The parents went to court after a student was disciplined for wearing socks with the "Winnie the Pooh" cartoon character Tigger to school last year.

The district's superintendent said Thursday that the settlement money is for the plaintiffs' lawyers.

The settlement also says Redwood Middle School may no longer require students to wear only solid-color clothing.
