MOUNT VERNON — A lawsuit filed against the city of Mount Vernon and two high ranking police officers has been settled.

An agreement has been reached between the city of Mount Vernon and Andrew Barber after Barber claimed he was bullied into selling his Jeep to Sgt. Robert “Kit” Morgan while the vehicle was in the city’s impound lot.
