The Las Cruces Sun-News reports the New Mexico school district will pay $10,000 to Stenhouse Publishers in a settlement that was finalized in late June.

The lawsuit claims the book "Everyday Editing" by John Anderson was posted to the district's website sometime before late March. Suit documents are unclear on how long the book may have been on the website.

Under the settlement, the Maine-based publishing company will give the school district a $5,000 credit toward the purchase of works by the same author after the company receives the settlement check.
