The district agreed to pay the student $1 damages and $12,500 in legal fees . . .

The settlement allows the student to wear his T-shirts, although the district retained the right to react if the shirts cause substantial disruption in the schools.

The lawsuit claims that during April a middle school principal and several teachers told the student he couldn't wear the shirts, and when he did they made him turn them inside out.

The lawsuit was filed in June by attorneys for the Thomas More Law Center, a Michigan-based Christian legal advocacy group.
