Alaska settles lawsuit that alleged wrongful firing

    Juneau, Alaska (AP) - A former assistant public advocate for the state will receive $75,000 as part of a settlement in a case she brought against Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy, a former chief of staff and the state that alleged wrongful firing.

    The Anchorage Daily News reports Kelly Parker agreed to drop her lawsuit as part of the agreement, signed last month.

    The agreement says nothing in it should be deemed an admission of liability by the state.

    The case was one of three filed after the Dunleavy administration, as part of its 2018 transition into office, asked at-will employees to submit resignation letters and reapply for their jobs.
