South Hadley paid Prince family $225,000 in settlement

The family of Phoebe Prince, the South Hadley teenager who took her life allegedly in response to a barrage of bullying, received $225,000 from the town and in exchange agreed not to sue the girl’s school district, according to a copy of the settlement disclosed yesterday.

The disclosure was made four days after a Hampshire Superior Court judge ruled in favor of a reporter who had filed a lawsuit demanding that the town release the record.
