Insurer Agrees to Pay Settlement with Fired Hartford Housing Chief

December 17, 2008

A lawsuit filed by the fired executive director of the Hartford Housing Authority in Connecticut has been settled for about $150,000.

Lancelot Gordon had filed suit after he was fired in 2006 for allegedly misusing public money.

Gordon later filed a federal lawsuit to get his job back, claiming that he was fired because he was trying to uncover widespread corruption at the agency involving developers, politicians and agency officials.

On Monday, authority officials said that their insurance company has decided to pay Gordon.

In the agreement settling the lawsuit, Gordon acknowledges that the authority says it did not act illegally when it fired him.
