Thirteen New Jersey state troopers who filed racial discrimination claims against the state police, alleging they were harassed, hazed and denied promotion, have agreed to settle their claims for a total of $4 million.

“We are no longer willing to defend against the actions of the previous administration,” said Douglas Wolfson, the director of the Division of Law within the Attorney General’s Office. The settlement includes about $1 million in attorneys’ fees, says Wolfson.
