A settlement has been reached in the district court case involving a Los Alamos couple against Anthony Stanford, a former Emergency Operations division leader, and Los Alamos National Security, LLC, according to the couple’s attorney John Day on Monday.
“We can’t discuss the terms,” Day said. “The lab asked to keep it confidential. The Gormans are incredibly happy with the result and are happy it’s over. They are looking forward to continuing their successful careers at the lab.”
The lab said in a statement, “the laboratory is pleased that the matter has been settled. Terms of the settlement are being kept private. And, due to employee privacy, we do not discuss specific personnel actions.”
Stanford retired with full benefits in 2013 from the lab before criminal charges were filed.
The Gormans decided to file a civil complaint after it was determined that the most Stanford would face if convicted of the assault and battery charge would be probation, according to Day in an earlier article in the Los Alamos Monitor.
