SALT LAKE CITY — A federal lawsuit filed over a teacher convicted of sexually abusing students has been settled.

One of the victims and his family sued ex-Davis High School teacher Brianne Altice and the Davis School District. It accused school officials of not doing enough to protect students from Altice. The school district was dismissed from the lawsuit last year, leaving Altice as the lone defendant.

Court records show that U.S. District Court Judge Robert Shelby dismissed the remainder of the lawsuit last week. The attorney for the former student, whom FOX 13 is not naming because he is a victim of sexual abuse, said in a court filing that a settlement had been reached. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed in court filings and an attorney representing the former student and his family did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

Altice was accused of having improper relationships with three students at Davis High School. She was convicted in 2015 and paroled last year.
