A former Allegheny General Hospital physician has settled his federal lawsuit claiming hospital officials kicked him out of a psychiatric residency program for successfully complaining about ethnic and religious discrimination, the man's lawyer said Wednesday.

Mansoor Khan was twice kicked out of the program. He successfully appealed the first dismissal on the grounds it was partly motivated by the fact that he's a Pakistani native and a Muslim. He claimed in the lawsuit that hospital officials orchestrated his second dismissal in retaliation for that successful appeal.

Both sides filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit Tuesday and U.S. District Judge Terrence McVerry approved the motion Wednesday.

John Newborg, Khan's lawyer, confirmed there was a settlement but otherwise declined comment. The hospital's lawyer couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
