ACLU and ex-director at TiZA have a settlement
by Herón Márquez
The American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota confirmed Thursday that it has reached a settlement in a civil suit against the former director of the now-defunct Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TiZA) charter school.
The tentative agreement, filed last week in federal court, follows last month's settlement for $1.4 million in bankruptcy court against the school. The ACLU had been seeking to recover $2.4 million from TiZA.
Both actions still have to be agreed to by the respective courts, said Teresa Nelson, an attorney for the ACLU.
