A federal judge has tossed out the majority of a lawsuit brought against a woman by the Bethlehem Area School District.

Only one claim remains in the suit against Diana Zhou. The district claimed Zhou tried to drive up costs unnecessarily by making various requests on behalf of her two children, who are eligible for gifted and special education services in the district.

The judge also ruled that Zhou's counterclaim against the district can move forward.
