Rutgers University, while denying wrongdoing, has settled a lawsuit by four groundskeepers -- three of them black and one a Latino -- who charged that they were denied promotions because of racial discrimination, The Star-Ledger reported. Each plaintiff will receive $71,875, and their lawyers will receive a total of $300,000 in legal fees. Both sides had agreed not to publicize the settlement, but the newspaper obtained it under an open records request.
