Plum has settled a federal disability discrimination lawsuit with a with a former borough worker, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
The borough paid Alan D. Lyons $6,600 and his attorney, Joseph Chivers, $4,400 to settle the lawsuit.
Once the assistant public works director, the 57-year-old Monroeville resident claimed in the lawsuit Plum fired him in December 2010 after he asked for an accommodation for his disability.
The borough in turn said Lyons was let go for failing to do his job and that he claimed he had an unspecified disability only on the day he was fired, the Trib reports. It was unclear what disability Lyons said he has.
The Tribune –Review obtained the lawsuit settlement information after submitting a Right to Know request.
U.S. District Judge Arthur Schwab has since approved a joint motion to dismiss the case.
