The Loretto High School drama teacher fired last month for past volunteer work at a Planned Parenthood clinic has reached a settlement with the Catholic all-girls school, attorneys for the teacher and school said Friday.

Marie Bain of Sacramento, who alleged last week that her termination was a case of religious and sexual discrimination and a violation of free speech rights, will not be reinstated but will receive compensation from the school. Neither side would disclose how much.
