The Tennessee Supreme Court denied an application for permission to appeal brought by Brentwood Academy in a sexual assault case, The Tennessean reports. A lawsuit was filed last year against the school for the alleged sexual assault of a student on school property, and while a Williamson County judge dismissed the suit with prejudice, an appellate court reversed that ruling to allow the lawsuit to be refiled. Brentwood Academy petitioned the Supreme Court to overturn that ruling, but the court declined, thereby allowing the plaintiffs, John Doe and his mother Jane Doe, to refile the case at a future date.
