"Butt artist" settlement

From the AP: "A Virginia man fired from his job as a high school art teacher after a video of his work as a so-called 'butt-printing artist' surfaced on the Internet has reached a $65,000 settlement with his former employer. The agreement comes more than a year after Stephen Murmer was fired by the Chesterfield County School Board from his job at Monacan High School for his private artwork, much of which includes smearing his posterior and genitals with paint and pressing them against canvas."

For background, see here. The case was set for trial next week.
