The former manager of the North County jail project received $467,000 in a settlement with the county after he sued his former employer for wrongful termination and discrimination. Grady Williams, who is now retired as a condition of the settlement, was fired in 2013 while fighting severe cancer purportedly for using “PE” (professional engineer) in his title when he is accredited in another state. In January, Judge Donna Geck reinstated him to managing much more minimal jobs while maintaining his roughly $150,000 a year in salary and benefits.
