A senior agent for Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the U.S. government have agreed to settle a discrimination lawsuit out of court, according a court record filed Thursday. In a two-sentence notice, a lawyer for ICE Agent James T. Hayes Jr. said the “parties have come to an agreement in principal” to settle the case for $175,000. Hayes’ attorney Morris Fischer, wrote that along with the money, "a formal settlement agreement will be executed within the next several days" that will include other conditions, including Hayes keeping his job. Hayes filed the lawsuit in May and described a "frat house" environment at ICE that humiliated male employees under Barr. (AP Photo/U.S. Department of Homeland Security)
