“Mr. Flint Dollar and Mount de Sales Academy have reached a confidential settlement agreement to resolve this lawsuit, to the mutual satisfaction of both parties," Cox told Georgia Voice on Tuesday evening. "The parties have no further comment on this matter.”
The school’s handbook had a non-discrimination policy that included sexual orientation, but the contract he signed included a morality clause that the school may have used as grounds for Dollar’s dismissal.
Three members of the Mount de Sales Academy board of trustees resigned in the wake of the incident, and students and teachers rallied together to get the school to reinstate him but the school refused.
