HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Attorneys say a former student at an elite Connecticut prep school is dropping her lawsuit over alleged bullying by a clique of cruel girls.

Attorneys for Miss Porter’s School and Tatum Bass said this week in a joint statement that they resolved the 2008 case “with mutual respect” on Dec. 31.

The settlement terms were not disclosed.

Bass, of Beaufort, S.C., was a student government leader and athlete before the alleged harassment. Her lawsuit said administrators failed to protect her from a group of girls who bullied her in classes, in the dorm and on Facebook.

Miss Porter’s School in Farmington is among the nation’s most selective all-girls boarding schools. Its alumnae include Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis and Gloria Vanderbilt.
