ST. PAUL, Minn. — Lawyers debated the role of school administrators and the admissibility of additional accusations against former teacher Andy Tate as they made oral arguments Wednesday in the Brittany Plamp appeal.
In July, a South Dakota jury found Tate guilty of committing a battery against Plamp while she was a student, but the jury did not hold the Mitchell School District liable and did not award any monetary damages to Plamp. She had asked for $750,000.
