The director of the Georgia Vocational and Rehabilitation Agency has resigned—a departure that comes less than three months after the state paid $1.5 million to settle claims of racial discrimination against three black administrators he fired.

Sean Casey resigned his position as GVRA’s head around Feb. 18, said Candice Broce, a spokeswoman for Gov. Brian Kemp. Shawn Ryan, commissioner of the state Department of Administrative Services, was named as Casey’s replacement.
