Former court employee gets $250,000 settlement

Posted: Updated:
BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) -

A former Bay County Friend of the Court employee who filed a federal lawsuit saying she was sexually harassed is getting a $250,000 settlement.

The Bay City Times reports it obtained details of the settlement involving Patricia McIver and her lawyer following a Freedom of Information Act request. The county and proceeds from the county's insurance paid the settlement.

A gag order was issued in the case. U.S. District Judge Thomas L. Ludington last month dismissed McIver's lawsuit due to the out-of-court settlement.

In her lawsuit, McIver said a former colleague persistently harassed her over several years. McIver began working for the Friend of the Court in 2005 and stopped working there in December 2010, saying she was unable to take the harassment any longer.
