(Iron County, UT) — Eight female employees and the Iron County School District have agreed to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit. The women sued the district after another employee, Samuel Naim El-Halta, made repeated lewd comments to them and administrators at Cedar Middle School did nothing more than ask him to stop. The district will pay out 340-thousand dollars as part of the settlement. El-Halta served a month in jail for harassing the women and was fired in 2014 for looking at pornography while at school.
