The fired former head of the Idaho Department of Transportation has reached a settlement with the state that will pay her $750,000, according to a story in the Idaho Statesman. She said in a lawsuit that she was fired without cause and for political reasons.
Pam Lowe, who now works in the transportation division for the state of Delaware, will receive $562,500 in $5,000 monthly installments for 10 years beginning in October 2013. The remaining money will go for legal fees.
The settlement also requires the state transportation department to write a letter stating she performed satisfactorily during her time with the department and that neither side may say anything about each other.
