The City of Electra has settled a Wrongful Termination lawsuit filed by former Police Chief Johnny Morris.
Electra officials released a statement on Monday saying the amount approved by the City Commission was $120,000.
The settlement states that Electra is not admitting guilt of any wrong doing and the lawsuit has been dismissed.
Mayor Curtis Warner said, "The City Commission held the opinion that a court case would re-expose emotions and halt the process of coming together as a city. Further, the City Commission is pleased with the progress achieved by the new command staff of Chief Michael Hopkins and Deputy Chief Michael Dozier in re-establishing the police department".
As part of the settlement agreement Morris agrees to not seek, apply for, or accept any position or appointment with the City of Electra.
