WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — An attorney for a Kansas military school says the issues brought in a lawsuit in which 11 former students alleged abuse have been resolved.

St. John's Military School attorney John Schultz said in an email Monday that federal case is being dismissed.

The court confirmed that the trial scheduled to begin Tuesday in federal court in Kansas City, Kan., has been cancelled.

The attorney representing the students did not return messages for comment.

No details were immediately released.

The lawsuit was filed by former cadets who claimed the school's practice of giving higher ranking cadets the power to discipline younger ones encourages physical and mental abuse.
