An Erie County, Pa., school district will pay former teacher Angela Barsotti $100,000 to settle claims that it discriminated against her after she revealed she had an eating disorder and depression.

She claimed in her suit that she felt pressured to resign from the Iroquois district after she revealed the diagnosis because she was harassed.

She resigned in 2005. A confidentiality agreement bars the parties from discussing the settlement.
