Judge gives preliminary approval to Goose Creek school drug raid settlement

(Charleston-AP) April 4, 2006 - A federal judge Tuesday gave preliminary approval to a settlement of three lawsuits stemming from a drug sweep at Stratford High in Goose Creek back in 2003.

During the raid, police came into the school with guns drawn and used a dog to sniff for drugs. There were no arrests.

The agreement sets up two funds totaling $1.2 million.

Based on estimates from lawyers, students who sued or required medical or psychological attention after the raid would receive about $11,370. Other students would receive just over $6,000.

Just how many students are eligible will be determined in the coming months.
