Prosecutor of Middle Eastern descent reaches settlement with his boss, Youngstown


YOUNGSTOWN — A settlement has been reached in a federal religious and ethnic discrimination civil lawsuit by an assistant city prosecutor against his boss and the city.

In the settlement of the suit he filed in May 2009, Bassil Ally, a Muslim of Middle Eastern descent, will get a lump sum of $110,000 and a $4,000 annual pay raise, said Anthony Farris, city law director. Ally now earns $61,621 a year.

Of the lump-sum amount, $50,000 will come from the city because that is the city’s deductible on its insurance, and the rest will come from Midwest Claims, the city’s insurance company, Farris said.
