The long-running sexual harassment suit against National Business College has been settled out of court.
Two and a half years ago, N-B-C VICE President Lisa Meredith filed suit, claiming President Longaker pursued her relentlessly on and off the job. HE denied any wrong-doing.
Longaker was no longer a defendant, because the judge had dismissed him as a defendant. Because Longaker's actions allegedly created a "hostile work environment" at the College, the case against N-B-C was set for trial at the end of this month.
Meredith's lawyer confirmed the case was settled Friday, though he would not disclose terms of the settlement.
