The American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota says it has reached a tentative settlement of a civil lawsuit against the former director of a now-closed charter school accused of promoting religion.
The Star Tribune reports the tentative settlement was filed last week in federal court. It follows last month's settlement for $1.4 million in bankruptcy court against Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy, or TiZA.
The ACLU had been seeking to recover $2.4 million from TiZA.
ACLU attorney Teresa Nelson says the group would not comment on the settlement involving the former director, Asad Zaman, until the federal court approves the settlement.
Zaman could not be reached for comment Thursday.
The ACLU sued TiZA in 2009, alleging that the school was using taxpayer money to promote Islam.
