School pays to settle service animal suit

An Oregon school is paying off a deaf student to settle a claim over her service dog. Portland State University will give Cindy Leland $160,000 after the school refused to let her service animal live in her dorm or be allowed in her biology lab. The school issued a statement denying the allegations, but administrators still agreed to settle the suit and admitted "Ms. Leland's experience was difficult and wish her success as she continues her studies."
