Last summer, Mauricia Grant, a former official and technical inspector for NASCAR's Nationwide Series sued her ex-company to the tune of $225 million. She claimed that during her time with NASCAR -- from January 2005 until her termination in October 2007 -- that she had been the victim of 23 specific incidents of sexual harassment and 34 specific incidents of racial and gender discrimination. Those are serious accusations levied towards organizers, so it's not too surprising to hear that the lawsuit has been settled out of court.
Earlier this year, two of the officials specifically named in the suit were terminated and another was released for unrelated reasons. So far, no other specifics of the settlement have been released, but NASCAR seems pleased. Spokesman Ramsey Poston said in a statement, "We're glad to have the case settled on mutually acceptable terms," adding, "We wish Ms. Grant well in her future endeavors." So, um, no hard feelings, right?
