Colorado's former top real estate regulator is getting about $55,000 from taxpayers under a resignation settlement.
Erin Toll resigned last week after a three month suspension that followed a clash with a state lawmaker.
The state released a copy of the settlement agreement this week in response to a request from The Associated Press. The deal says that Toll will be paid $55,053.93, including about $7,200 for time off she had earned.
The remainder is being paid in exchange for Toll dropping a lawsuit and personnel board complaints. She had claimed that officials violated her rights, such as by leaking word of her suspension.
Toll has also agreed to give up her right to file lawsuits on various other grounds.
