'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A former assistant public works director has settled a federal lawsuit claiming that Plum Borough fired him in December 2010 because of a disability instead of his job performance, according to court documents filed Friday.

Alan D. Lyons, 57, of Monroeville claimed in the lawsuit that the borough fired him after he asked for an accommodation of his disability. The borough denied Lyons' allegation.

U.S. District Judge Arthur Schwab on Friday approved a joint motion to dismiss the case. The motion says that Lyons has resolved his claims against the borough but doesn't provide any details. Lyons' attorney, Joseph Chivers, was unavailable for comment.

Plum's solicitor, Bruce Dice, referred questions to the borough manager, Mike Thomas, who couldn't be reached for comment.
