Nashville-Based Prison Company Pays $260,000 Lawsuit

The largest private prison company in America paid $260,000 to a group of shift supervisors in Kentucky to settle claims that they were denied overtime, according to an agreement unsealed today. Nashville-based Corrections Corporation of America paid the money in November to end a lawsuit brought by 25 employees of the now-shuttered Marion Adjustment Center in St. Mary's, Kentucky. The group claimed in a 2012 lawsuit that CCA denied them overtime after forcing them to work extra hours. CCA has denied the allegations. The Chattanooga Times Free Press has more.
