Learning-disabled athlete loses court bid for football eligibility

Defensive tackle David Ingram yesterday lost his bid to return to the Start High School football team for tonight's game against Whitmer, and likely won't play football again. Mr. Ingram, who has a learning disability, sued the school district after he learned in August that he flunked a required English class last spring. U.S. District Court Judge David Katz refused a request for a temporary restraining order against Toledo Public Schools to change Mr. Ingram's grade on an English exam and restore his academic eligibility.
