La PORTE — A La Porte couple who accused staff at Kingsbury Elementary School of strapping their autistic, then-7-year-old daughter, into a homemade restraining chair in the classroom have settled a lawsuit against the district.

The settlement was reached this week between the La Porte Community School Corp., and Heather and Charles Castle, just before a trial in U.S. District Court in South Bend was scheduled to start.
