Va. Tech settles ex-worker's discrimination suit

ROANOKE, Va. (AP) -- Virginia Tech has settled a former employee's lawsuit that claimed she was paid less than male co-workers and faced retaliation when she complained.
The Roanoke Times reports that Virginia Tech paid $55,000 to Shana Maron and $100,000 to her attorneys in August. The Blacksburg school denied that there was any retaliation.

The newspaper says Virginia Tech spokesman Larry Hincker released the agreement Tuesday under the state open records act.  Maron's attorney declined to comment.According to the agreement, both sides wanted to end the case rather than hold a third trial.  The previous trials were held in 2011 and 2012 in U.S. District Court in Roanoke.  Maron filed the lawsuit in 2008 after she resigned.
