Two former interim directors at Carlow University, who sued in June alleging age discrimination, have settled their cases, according to court documents filed today.
Josephine Hatalla, of Squirrel Hill, and Joan House, of Penn Hills, were both in their 60s when their positions were eliminated in 2012, according to their complaint.
The parties worked out settlement terms at a mediation last week. Today they filed a stipulation dismissing the case in U.S. District Court. The settlement terms were not indicated, and plaintiffs' attorney Sam Cordes declined to detail them.
A Carlow spokesman had no immediate knowledge of the settlement.
Ms. Hatalla was the university's interim director of academic advising, and Ms. House was its interim director of disability services, when their jobs and nine others were eliminated, according to their complaint. They claimed that the majority of the positions that were eliminated were held by women over age 60.
A third plaintiff, Kathleen Wunschel, of Plum, who was the university's mailroom supervisor, dropped out of the case in July.
