WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - A federal judge has given final approval for a settlement of more than $1 million in a class-action lawsuit filed by three former employees of a North Carolina hospital that’s now closed.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports the judge issued the approval on Wednesday. A preliminary settlement was announced April 24.

Yadkin Valley Community Hospital was shut down May 22, 2015, by CAH Acquisition 10 LLC, which remained in the hospital until Yadkin County took possession through a federal court agreement in July 2015.

Three of the nearly 150 hospital employees who lost their jobs filed the class-action request, citing the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act.

The 142 class members will receive a combined $660,000, with compensation ranging from $803 to $21,100 a person.
