DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Two lawsuits against the University of Iowa have been settled.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/29oDv2U ) that lawsuits from people injured on the campus were settled Tuesday for $125,000 in separate agreements.

The first involved a man injured while using a climbing wall at the university. Spencer Bean, a former student, had said in a lawsuit that the school failed to properly supervise or monitor nearly 53-foot wall, leading him to fall off it in November 2012. The Iowa Appeal Board agreed to a $75,000 settlement to resolve that lawsuit.

The board also approved a $50,000 settlement to Elizabeth Lester, who was struck in a crosswalk by a bus that is part of the schools public transportation system in March 2012.
