+ - LMSD Settles Laptop Webcam Litigation->

Submitted by tekgoblin
tekgoblin (1675894) writes "Remember back in February when the Lower Merion School District had been accused of privacy invasion when they activated webcams on laptops issued to students. Shortly after the accusations the school had responded and said that the feature was installed as an anti-theft device and would only be activated if the laptop was stolen. Recently there was also an announcement that there would be no criminal charges filed against anyone involved in the incident.

Today LMSD has announced that they have finally reached a settlement with the plaintiffs and will pay out a total of $610,000 total to the effected students."
