Hershey School Settles HIV Discrimination Case

See this article from the Philadelphia Inquirer.  It begins:
The Milton Hershey School for impoverished children will pay $700,000 to settle a federal lawsuit filed by a 14-year-old Delaware County boy who claimed he was denied admission last year because of HIV. 
The school also will pay $15,000 to the federal government to settle potential civil penalties. 
The Justice Department investigated the boy's complaint and determined that the Hershey School violated provisions of the Americans With Disabilities Act, or ADA, in denying the boy admission, according to the settlement.
