Ex-N.J. assistant prosecutor gets $320K settlement in discrimination lawsuit.

Susan Gleason claimed in her suit that a top official now with the attorney general’s office, Lyndsay Ruotolo, told her in 2019 she couldn’t be promoted because Gleason’s husband was chief of detectives and it would “look funny.”
