City settles over Ebola scare suit
The insurance carrier for a Connecticut city paid $30,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by the family of a thirdgrader who was barred from school for several days because of Ebola fear.
School officials in Milford initially told 7-year-old Ikeoluwa Opayemi to stay out of school for three weeks in October after she attended a family wedding in Nigeria.
The girl showed no symptoms of Ebola, and Nigeria had no known cases of the virus.
Shewas allowed to return to school after her father filed a federal lawsuit.
