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.
