GARNER, Iowa (AP) - A settlement has been reached in a lawsuit against Casey's General Stores Inc. filed by a former employee who says a video camera was placed in an office she used to pump breast milk.
    
The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/tThAY1) that the details of the settlement are confidential.
    
Stepheni Salz gave birth in March 2011. Her lawsuit says when she returned to work at a Casey's store in Garner, she was told she could use an office to pump breast milk.
    
The lawsuit says on July 28 she discovered a video camera had been installed in the office and had been operating since July 15.
    
The lawsuit claimed the company violated her privacy and a federal law that says employers must provide women a private place.
