A Pennsylvania woman who said AT&T improperly billed the government for millions of dollars in services has settled a federal lawsuit. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Tuesday that AT&T Corp. paid $3.5 million to settle the case though the company still denies wrongdoing. The case was filed in 2010 by Constance Lyttle, a former AT&T employee from western Pennsylvania. She said she was fired because she sought to prevent international con artists from using a service for the hearing impaired. Lyttle received $525,000 of the settlement under whistle-blower laws.
