The principal of Liberty High School in Hillsboro has agreed to apologize to a student who was told to go home or cover up his “Donald J. Trump Border Wall Construction Co.” shirt in January.

Addison Barnes, an 18-year-old senior, was suspended for wearing the shirt backing Trump’s immigration and Homeland Security policies. He then sued the high school, the principal and the Hillsboro School District, arguing they violated his First Amendment rights.

In late May, a federal judge issued a temporary restraining order, essentially barring the school for the remainder of the school year from enforcing its earlier decision prohibiting Barnes from wearing the shirt.

On Tuesday, Barnes’ lawyers announced they reached a settlement with the district: Principal Greg Timmons will issue a letter of apology and the district will pay $25,000 for Barnes’ attorney fees.
