Ithaca Appeals Racial Harrassment Ruling

July 22, 2010 Updated Jul 2, 2009 at 12:16 PM EDT

The Ithaca City School District will appeal a state order to pay 400-thousand dollars to settle the Amelia Kearney racial harassment suit.
The school board voted Wednesday, to file a petition for review of the decision by the state Human Rights Commission.
Last May, it ordered the district to compensate Kearney and her daughter Epiphany and take steps to prevent future harassments.
In 2006, Kearney claimed the district failed to protect her daughter, from a group of white students that made racial comments towards her on a district school bus.
