New Castle’s insurer has agreed to settle lawsuits by its former chief of police and a department records clerk for a total of $30,000.

Former Chief Thomas Sansone sued in June, claiming that he was bumped down to lieutenant in retaliation for his investigation of thefts at the Sylvan Heights Golf Course, which resulted in charges against a politically connected former city employee, and a probe into a city council member.

He later retired and has settled his lawsuit for $20,000, according to a release supplied Monday by the city in response to a right-to-know request. In the release, the city admitted no liability.

Records clerk Maureen Ambrosia also sued, claiming that as an ally of Mr. Sansone, she faced retaliation from city officials after his demotion. She settled for $10,000, according to a release.
