ESCANABA, Mich. (AP) - A school district no longer is facing a lawsuit in which three Upper Peninsula school bus drivers said their buses showed signs of tampering.

The Daily Press of Escanaba reports (http://bit.ly/27gSe7v ) the case involving Sandy Wanic was dismissed on Wednesday after Delta County Circuit Court Judge Stephen Davis determined there was no evidence that retaliation had occurred.

Wanic had said Escanaba Area Public Schools discriminated against her and other female bus drivers by tying dipsticks together and using silicone to seal bus hoods shut.

The school district had said it was unaware of such actions.

In September, the court dismissed part of the lawsuit involving allegations of gender discrimination by Wanic, Jody Bergeon and Sharon Curtin. The remaining portion that was dismissed Wednesday involved Wanic and her retaliation allegations.
