This is how it goes....
An Alabama high school coach who won a case before the Supreme Court after he was fired from his job has reached a settlement with his local school board.

As part of the deal, Roderick Jackson will keep his job as head of the girls basketball program at Jackson-Olin High School in Birmingham. The Board of Education also has promised to provide equal facilities citywide for all girls and boys teams.
Under terms of the deal reached Tuesday, Jackson receives $50,000 and his lawyers get $340,000 for the five years it took to fight the case.
Whole Story
