NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - A federal judge has approved a $575,000 settlement between the city of Portsmouth and hundreds of current and former police officers who claim they were not paid for some overtime worked.

The Virginian-Pilot (https://bit.ly/1GTfkko ) reports U.S. District Judge Henry Morgan signed off on the deal Thursday.

Court documents say individual payouts for the officers will range from about $5 to more than $12,000. About 40 percent of the settlement amount will go to their attorneys.

The settlement hearing came five months after Portsmouth paid 29 current and former fire captains $385,000 to settle another lawsuit involving unpaid overtime. The captains’ attorneys received an additional $168,250.
