US court to enforce terms of settlement agreement in discrimination lawsuit

THE federal court will retain jurisdiction to enforce the terms of the settlement agreement reached by Imperial Pacific International and its former table and games supervisor in a discrimination lawsuit.

District Court for the NMI Chief Judge Ramona V. Manglona dismissed with prejudice the lawsuit of Dennis Campbell after the parties reached a settlement.

Campbell sued IPI for employment discrimination based on disability in violation of the American with Disabilities Act.  IPI denied Campbell’s allegation.

Campbell is represented by Jeanne H. Rayphand of the Northern Marianas Protection and Advocacy Systems Inc. while attorney Kelley Butcher represented IPI.

After reaching a settlement, the two lawyers filed a stipulation of dismissal with prejudice.

The stipulation also requested that the district court retain jurisdiction for the purpose of enforcing the terms of the settlement.
