Former Iowa police chief settles lawsuit against city

Posted: Updated:

HARTLEY, Iowa (AP) -- A former police chief who sued the city of Hartley over his firing has settled the lawsuit.
  
The Sioux City Journal reports that the dismissal of Mark Younie's lawsuit was filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Sioux City.
  
The settlement agreement says the city's insurance carrier, EMC Cos., will pay Younie $25,000 on behalf of the city. The city will pay Younie's attorneys $75,000, to be split with Younie in accordance with his contract with the attorneys.
  
Younie was fired in January 2014, and he sued the city in October 2014. He alleged in the lawsuit that he was fired because he'd filed a grievance alleging a labor law violation. The city said Younie's firing was unrelated to the grievance.
