Privacy Settlement for Perdue and Marshall

University and the daughter of state Treasurer John Perdue have reached a tentative settlement over her lawsuit claiming the school and a professor violated her privacy by releasing information about her grades.

State Board of Risk and Insurance Management Director Chuck Jones told "The Charleston Gazette" Wednesday that Emily Perdue's attorneys have agreed to dismiss the lawsuit in exchange for an $81,250 settlement.

Emily Perdue filed the lawsuit in July, claiming she suffered emotional distress and harm by the leaked information.

Jones said the parties agreed to the settlement Tuesday but it would take several days before it would be finalized.

John Perdue's spokesman had no comment. A Marshall spokesman was not available Wednesday.
