The Tennessee Court of Appeals ruled the judge presiding over a sexual assault case against Brentwood Academy should have allowed it to be refiled at a later date.

It was dismissed in court in January, but could now be back on the table.

The lawsuit accuses administrators of failing to respond appropriately after a boy was repeatedly assaulted in a locker room by older students.

The school denied the claims and Brentwood Police said they would not pursue charges.
