Judge rules against teen in 4-H cheating case

Posted: Updated:

A federal judge has ruled that a South Dakota teenager embroiled in a 4-H cheating scandal is not entitled to monetary damages in her case against two 4-H administrators.
    
Bayley Kroupa was barred from participating in 4-H in 2011, when she was 16, after officials said she cheated in a State Fair competition by showing a pig different from one she showed at a county fair Her family denied cheating and sued for $850,000, saying she had been humiliated and denied due process.
    
Judge Karen Schreier says the two 4-H officials couldn't have been expected to view their actions as depriving Kroupa of her constitutional rights.
    
Schreier left intact a previously granted injunction allowing Kroupa to compete. The 18-year-old will be eligible to participate in 4-H until she's 19.
