"The state Assembly will pay $540,000 to settle a suit brought by a former staff member who maintains she was harassed for breast-feeding her baby at work, lawyers for the plaintiff said Thursday. The deal for Pamela "P.J." Harper, former head of the Assembly's Travel Office, was reached Monday when the case was scheduled to go to trial, according to Haig A. Harris Jr., one of her attorneys. It will be one of the biggest payouts made by the Assembly to settle an internal sex-discrimination dispute."
