AG Slatery Orders Information Regarding Confidential Rape Settlement to be Unsealed

Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery has ordered court records regarding a confidential settlement paid by Hamilton County Schools as result of a 2015 Ooltewah rape case to be unsealed, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports. The case stemmed from an incident where four minors claimed to be victims of rape perpetrated by older classmates during a basketball tournament trip to Gatlinburg. Slatery’s most recent motion calls for the court to unseal the dollar amount of the settlement between Hamilton County Schools, its insurer and an anonymous victim; however, other information and documents contained in the court file would remain sealed.
