LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A group of former employees and Nashville, Tenn.-based Corrections Corporation of America have settled a lawsuit involving allegations that the company refused to pay overtime to former shift supervisors at a private prison in Kentucky.
Terms of the agreement between at least 25 people who worked at the Marion Adjustment Center in St. Mary's and the company were not disclosed. The group claimed CCA forced them to work extra hours and denied them overtime. CCA has denied the allegations.
A trial had been set for June 18 after settlement talks failed at the end of October. U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II in Louisville approved the agreement Wednesday.
Kentucky removed the last of its 800 inmates from the facility earlier this year.
