DES MOINES — A $1.75 million settlement has been reached in the lawsuit of a former state Senate Republican staffer fired after she complained of sexual harassment in the GOP office.

The settlement Friday between state attorneys and Kirsten Anderson. It’s less than the $2.2 million awarded to Anderson by a jury in July. But under the settlement, the state will drop its appeal.

The State Appeal Board is expected to approve the settlement on Monday.
