Norfolk Settles Lawsuit from Fired Military Liaison

The city will pay $157,500 to settle a lawsuit filed by its former military liaison, who claimed he was fired three years ago for raising ethical questions about a federal program meant to help veterans find jobs.

The settlement came last month after a federal judge ruled John Andrews’ retaliation claim could go to trial.

But it also came after the inspector general’s office for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs found there was no evidence of a conflict of interest.
