GOSHEN, N.Y. (AP) - A district attorney says there won’t be criminal charges brought in connection with a federal lawsuit claiming anti-Semitic harassment and bullying at a Hudson Valley school district.

A two-year-old lawsuit against the Pine Bush School District alleges that Jewish students were called names and endured harassment from fellow students. District officials have denied that they turned a blind eye to a pervasive problem.

Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler announced Tuesday that an exhaustive investigation by state police found no viable criminal charges related to the federal complaint.

The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports (https://bit.ly/1xaaYpL ) that Hoovler said that while anti-Semitism is abhorrent, not every wrongful action committed by children can result in criminal prosecution.

The civil case is moving forward.
