$69,000 win makes expulsion bearable

THREE students expelled for making a movie in which evil teddy bears attack a teacher will share $69,000 (?52,000) in a settlement of a lawsuit.

The board of the Charles A. Beard School Corp. in Indiana, USA, approved the action, which stemmed from the school's response to a movie called 'The Teddy Bear Master'.

The expulsions will be erased from the record and the students will be allowed to make up for missed work. Two of them still must write letters of apology to a teacher named in the movie and his wife.

Three of the four students expelled for making the film had sued, claiming their free speech had been violated.
