A Superior Court judge in Camden has ordered the New Jersey Attorney General’s office to stand by its agreement to pay $1.3 million to settle a suit by a former detective who said he suffered retribution for reporting sexual harassment.

Judge Francisco Dominguez, in a March 2 order, said the state must honor settlement terms that its attorney agreed to in court. The judge granted the plaintiff’s motion to enforce the settlement and rejected a series of additional provisions that the state sought to impose on the plaintiff in Stopko v. New Jersey Attorney General’s Office, finding they were not part of the settlement that was placed on the record on Jan. 23. The additional terms sought by the state included a bid to make the entire award taxable.
