ABERDEEN, Wash. (AP) -- Community Hospital in Aberdeen will pay $125,000 to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit filed last year by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The money goes to three people involved in complaints in 2007 in the pharmacy department.

KBKW reports the hospital admits no wrongdoing and says it settled to avoid the cost of trial. The hospital also agreed to more employee training.
