MORGAN HILL, California, January 7, 2004 ( – Striking a deal to end a five year lawsuit by six former students backed by homosexual activists, a California school district has agreed to mandatory programs for students and staff on “eliminating anti-gay harassment”. In addition to the programs, which are notorious for pushing acceptance of homosexuality rather than mere tolerance, the Morgan Hill Unified School District has agreed to $1.1 million in payments. The school districts lawyer Mark Davis cut the deal Tuesday saying the prospects of a lengthy trial and a possible $3 million in costs was sufficient pressure to offer the settlement. Meanwhile, the school district officials maintain that school administrators and teachers responded appropriately to cases of harassment. See the Mercury News coverage:
