A New York federal court panel upheld a $1 million dollar judgement against the Pine Plains Central School District in Duchess County on Monday. The grounds of the original lawsuit was racial harrassment.

The plaintiff in the suit was Anthony Zeno, a former student at Stissing Mountain High School in Pine Plains, New York. The award was reduced from the $1.25 million a jury originally awarded during a 2010 trial. Zeno, now 23, works as a barber and endured severe racial harrassment, according to the opinion of the appeals court.
