In a lawsuit against the Metro Nashville Public School system, a federal judge ruled that lawyers can not question teenage girls about their sexual history.

The suit claims that school administrators at Maplewood High School did nothing to protect a 14-year-old girl who was involved in ongoing sexual encounters with a teacher.

It claims the teacher asked her if she was a lesbian and made sexually suggestive comments indicating that she wished she was 18 years old. Read the full lawsuit here.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Alistair Newbern made the ruling, saying applies to five lawsuits filed against the school district.
