Details of the settlement weren't part of the documents filed last month in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids, but WOOD-TV reported that it obtained details through a Freedom of Information Act filing.
West Ottawa Public Schools officials said Susan Brennan was fired in 2010 for poor classroom performance. The district said she was dishonest in grading, and failed to use proper lesson plans and grading methods.
Brennan denies the claims, saying she was targeted because she worked as a stripper during a leave of absence.
The settlement is paying Brennan $37,000, plus $8,000 for lawyer fees.
