The lawsuit alleging that a Clark County teacher put a young girl in a padded room for punishment has been tossed out by a judge.

The Winchester Sun Newspaper says after the judge in the case heard arguments from lawyers on both sides of the aisle he decided that the teacher's alleged to be involved were protected under the state's immunity law. The law protects employees when the acts were performed within their offical job related duties.

Matthew, and Lindsay Lucas of Georgetown say that their daughter suffered severe mental anguish back in 2010 when she was put in a dark room for six minutes as punishment.

The Lucas's were suing the school for money, and ordering that the school no longer use the rooms.

The Lucas's moved to another district after the incident.

Since their case was dismissed with prejudice the Lucas's can't file the suit again on the same claim.
