In Gebser v. Lago Vista Independent School District, the United States Supreme Court held that a school district could not be held liable under Title IX for a teacher's sexual harassment of a student without actual notice and deliberate indifference. In a five to four decision, the Court affirmed summary judgment in favor of the school district.'
