Trooper Who Guarded Governor Settles Lawsuit with State Police



The Pennsylvania State Police are agreeing to pay $95,000 dollars to settle a former trooper's racial discrimination lawsuit that exposed a department investigation into Asian sex trips by other troopers.
 
The state police have released the settlement agreement in the federal case filed by Joseph Farthing, who had worked in the team that guards the governor.
Farthing wasn't implicated in the Asian trips.
 
The department recently denied a request for the settlement agreement, arguing it was exempt from disclosure under the state Right-to-Know Law until the money was paid. He also received an honorable discharge.
 
Farthing, who is African-American, had claimed top officials with the state police had concocted a racially motivated claim that he had improperly milked overtime while guarding then-Governor Ed Rendell.
