KINGMAN, AZ (AP) -

A Kingman employee fired because she is married to a motorcycle club member is getting a $50,000 settlement from the northwestern Arizona city.

Melissa Summerson was fired in December from her human resources job because officials were concerned she might leak sensitive information to her husband's club.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports that the settlement is disclosed in records filed in Summerson's federal court lawsuit against the city.

The suit accused the city of violating Summerson's constitutional freedom of association.

Mayor Janet Wilson declined to discuss officials' discussion of the lawsuit but Summerson attorney David Kresin said his client feels vindicated.

Summerson was terminated in December 2012 after members of the city's legal and law enforcement departments expressed concerns that Summerson might leak information such as employees' home addresses.
