Ex-Weber County judge ends harassment suit with court clerk

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A former Weber County court clerk has reached a settlement to end a sexual harassment lawsuit against a former judge who wrote a love poem to her.

The Standard-Examiner reports attorneys have reached an out-of-court settlement on a punitive damages claim between ex-county justice court Judge Craig Storey and a court administrator.

Storey's lawyers served notice in U.S. District Court the claim has been settled and a dismissal motion ending the nine-year-old case would be submitted.

Terms of the settlement aren't being released because of a confidentiality agreement.

The settlement ends a multi-phase legal battle that also embroiled the county commission, which was accused of neglecting the court clerk when she came forward.

Storey says there was no evidence the poem was intended to harass or discriminate against the woman.
