The man suing the Ohio County Board of Education over sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of a former local teacher has agreed to end the case.

Christopher Birch made headlines earlier this year by suing the Board, among others over sexual abuse he suffered over 14 years by his teacher Elizabeth Harbert while a student at Bridge Street Middle School. Harbert pleaded guilty in August to sexual assault in the third degree and will serve one to five years in prison.
