SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah teenager who was one of three victims in the teacher sex case against Brianne Altice will appeal the dismissal of his lawsuit against the school district.

Court records show that attorneys for the teenager have filed a notice of appeal in the case against Davis School District. Judge John Morris tossed the suit in December.

Attorney Lindy Hamilton argues the school ignored the signs and failed to protect the boys, but state lawyers say Utah law protects schools from liability when students are assaulted.

Another victim in the case is also suing in federal court.

The 36-year-old former high school English teacher is serving at least two years in prison after pleading guilty to sexual abuse charges stemming from allegations that she had sex with three students aged 16 and 17.
