CAPE MAY, N.J. (AP) - Officials in a Jersey shore town say they need more time to consider a proposed $369,000 settlement with a gay former police officer who filed a discrimination lawsuit.

The Press of Atlantic City (https://bit.ly/2cRTgAM ) reports the Cape May City Council was scheduled to vote Tuesday on whether to approve the payment. But city attorney Anthony Monzo says no decision was made.

Steven Pascal claimed in his 2013 suit that the police department created a hostile, anti-gay work environment and unjustly fired him.

Monzo says a decision on the draft settlement is taking longer than expected because the city’s insurer won’t pick up the full payment. The city would have to pay $50,000 under the proposed settlement.
