Settlement reached with alleged victim in Calhoun post-prom sexual battery lawsuit

Calhoun High School

While the prosecution has sat dormant for two years, payments to an alleged sexual battery victim from Calhoun (Ga.) High School are streaming in.

The insurance company for the Coosawattee River Resort Association in Ellijay, Ga., reached a settlement with the female former student Friday as part of a lawsuit, multiple lawyers tied to the case said. In May 2014, the student accused three classmates of penetrating her against her will in a Gilmer County cabin during an after-prom party.

The settlement with the gated community, where the crime is alleged to have occurred, comes three months after the owners of the cabin also settled with the accuser. Court filings do not disclose how much money they paid.

For a case that began almost three years ago and grabbed national headlines, the slow developments of the civil lawsuit are the only publicly available proof anything is happening.
