Sexual assault lawsuit dropped against Brentwood Academy

WKRN web staff - BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (WKRN) - The lawsuit filed against Brentwood Academy over alleged sexual assault claims has been dismissed, according to a Williamson County Court filing.

The document states the lawsuit was dismissed "with prejudice," which means the lawsuit can't be refiled. It is unclear why the judge dismissed the lawsuit at this time.

The court filing also states the plaintiffs are required to pay the defendants' legal fees.

The case was set for a hearing Tuesday in Williamson County Court.
