$4M Paid To Settle Lawsuits Involving Former Coach

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A total of $4 million was paid to settle two lawsuits that accused a former Missouri high school coach of having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a student while the coach’s father was the superintendent of the school district. A judge approved the settlement in February, but the amount was not released at the time.  One lawsuit alleged Joseph Dahman had sexual contact with the girl after she began attending Harrisonville High School as a 14-year-old in the 2016-17 school year.
