Rogers student wins $425K settlement after suspension for tweeting he made out with teacher


A $425,000 federal court settlement has been reached in favor of a former Rogers High School student who was suspended in 2014 for writing a two-word tweet, in which he joked that he had made out with one of the school’s teachers.

Reid Sagehorn, 19, sued the Elk River School District, Superintendent Mark Bezek, Rogers Police Chief Jeffrey Beahen and others in June 2014, after the honors student and captain of the high school football and basketball teams was suspended earlier that year.
