A $150,000 settlement has been accepted by the family of a girl who claimed she had been fondled by her art teacher at a Westport school five years ago. The town of Westport, the school board and school officials agreed to the settlement with the family of the girl who was 12 at the time. The teacher named in the suit, Paul Held, taught art at Bedford Middle School. He was sentenced last month in a separate case to more than 10 years in federal prison for receiving child pornography.
