CANTON, Ohio - An Ohio taxpayer is dismissing his lawsuit over a $5,000 court fine that a judge directed to the Connecticut community where 26 people were killed in a school shooting.
The taxpayer's attorney says he dismissed the suit Friday after the judge had the money returned to Stark County in northeast Ohio.
Attorney Craig Conley had filed the suit, saying the law didn't allow the judge to send the money to the Newtown school support fund instead of having it paid to the county. Conley says the taxpayer he represents is satisfied his concerns have been addressed.
The money was paid by a former Ohio high school basketball coach convicted of videotaping boys in a locker room shower.
