BOGOTA, N.J. -- About half of a $2.25 million settlement will be given to former borough police officer, Regina Tasca, who was fired in 2012, according to NorthJersey.com.
In December, the Bogota council majority agreed on an undisclosed settlement amount to be paid through insurance and municipal funds, the Daily Voice reported.
The council fired Tasca in 2012 following a pair of on-duty incidents more than a year earlier.
Superior Court Judge Rachelle Harz invalidated the firing in 2015, saying then-Mayor Pat Hale and then-Councilman Tito Jackson should have recused themselves from the vote because of conflicts of interest.
The other half of the money from the settlement will go to lawyers and others involved in the suit, according to NorthJersey.com.
