CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- NASCAR has settled a $225 million lawsuit
filed by a former official who said she was subjected to racial
discrimination and sexual harassment during her two-plus years
working for the stock-car organization, The Associated Press has
learned.
The suit was settled during a mediation held in New York between
Mauricia Grant and NASCAR. Settlement terms were confidential.
"We're glad to have the case settled on mutually acceptable
terms," NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston said Thursday. "NASCAR
remains dedicated to maintaining a professional work environment
for all employees at all times, and we wish Ms. Grant well in her
future endeavors.
