JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Jefferson City school district and two high school administrators have been dropped from a lawsuit filed over a relationship between a teacher and a former student.

U.S. District Judge Nanette Laughrey on Tuesday dismissed the parties from the lawsuit, which was filed last July on behalf of a May 2013 graduate of Jefferson City High School.

The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/P4NHl7 ) the student, identified only as Jane Doe, accused the district and two administrators of not doing enough to stop former band teacher Christopher Knehans from having a relationship with her.

Knehans pleaded guilty in 2012 to two felony counts of sexual contact with a student. He was sentenced to 60 days on one count and three years’ supervised probation on the other, with both sentences suspended.
