COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho — A former Kootenai County deputy prosecutor who filed a wrongful termination lawsuit after he was fired in March 2011 has reached a settlement and has been rehired.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reports the county and Kenneth Stone reached a confidential monetary settlement, the lawsuit was dismissed and Stone was returned to his position with full salary and benefits.

Stone, who is 70, claimed in the lawsuit that he was pushed out of his job because of his age and for refusing to take a psychosexual examination after another deputy prosecutor accused him of “unwanted shoulder touching.” Stone argued such evaluations are reserved for “heinous sexual predators.”

Stone said he believed county officials began building a case to fire him after learning he planned to work beyond retirement age.
