Lower Merion School District approves final webcam settlement

    The Lower Merion School District is $19,500 away from being done with the webcam spying cases.

    The Board of School Directors approved the final settlement Monday, to be paid to former Harriton High student Josh Levin.

    Levin filed his suit last year, claiming the district-issued laptop he took home snapped photos of him with a webcam.

    The Main Line Times reports the district will pay $10,000 of the settlement and its insurance company will pay the rest. The district denies any wrongdoing. A more recent webcam spying case was dropped.
