John Stanton sued Superintendent Leonard Woodside after he says he was forced to resign in 2017 at Anchor Bay High School in St. Clair County. Stanton said the female security guard who got the gift wasn't upset as officials claimed.
The Detroit News reports Judge Linda Parker said Stanton failed to request a "name-clearing" hearing from the district. The Associated Press sent an email seeking comment from Stanton's lawyer. Woodside's lawyer was happy with this week's decision.
The item was reportedly confiscated from a student.
