MASON CITY, Iowa — A woman has dismissed her Iowa Supreme Court appeal of her bullying lawsuit against the Mason City school district.

Heather Conti had filed the lawsuit in June 2012 on behalf of her teenage daughter. The lawsuit says that during the previous school year, Angelina Conti suffered harassment that was "detrimental to her physical and mental health and substantially interfered with her academic performance." The lawsuit says that when Heather Conti complained to school officials, they took no action to protect the teenager.

A district court judge dismissed the lawsuit in September 2013, and Conti appealed to the high court a month later.

The Mason City Globe Gazette says ( ) court documents don't say why Conti has ended the appeal.
