     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota University System says the investigation into Minot State University's handling of sexual abuse complaints is regarding one complaint made by a student last year.
 
     Chief of Staff Murray Sagsveen says Minot State launched an investigation after a student filed a complaint alleging a civil rights violation. Sagsveen says the student no longer attends the university.  University and system officials investigated the complaint last year and are currently working with the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights on the matter.
 
     The Education Department says Minot State is among 55 colleges and universities in the country included in a Title IX investigation over sexual abuse complaints.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A former Bismarck middle school teacher scheduled to stand trial next week on allegations she had sex with a 15-year-old boy has pleaded guilty.
 
     Thirty-five-year-old Susan Duursma was charged in September with three counts of felony corruption or solicitation with a minor. Authorities say she had sexual contact with the student from March 2013 to July 2013.  Duursma pleaded guilty today to one count of abuse of a child.  The Bismarck Tribune reports that the plea agreement calls for Duursma to serve three months in prison. A judge will decide whether to accept the plea deal.
 
     Duursma was a physical education teacher at Wachter Middle School. She resigned in February after school district officials suspended her without pay in November.

     COOPERSTOWN, N.D. (AP) - The owner of a Fargo plumbing and heating company working on a controversial courthouse project in Cooperstown says workers were told to pack up and leave the job site.  Al Olson of Agassiz Mechanical tells KFGO radio that he hasn't received a payment for his company's work on the Griggs County Courthouse addition since last year. He estimates construction to be 90 to 95 percent completed.
 
     A manager for the project's general contractor did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.
 
     Cooperstown residents in October recalled all five county commissioners who voted to proceed with the $3.5 million addition despite three public votes against it.
 
     The Griggs County Courthouse was built in 1883 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
