GARNER, Iowa (AP) — A settlement has been reached in a lawsuit against Casey's General Stores Inc. filed by a former employee who says a video camera was placed in an office she used to pump breast milk.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports that the details of the settlement are confidential.

Stepheni Salz gave birth in March 2011. Her lawsuit says when she returned to work at a Casey's store in Garner, she was told she could use an office to pump breast milk.

The lawsuit says on July 28 she discovered a video camera had been installed in the office and had been operating since July 15.

The lawsuit claimed the company violated her privacy and a federal law that says employers must provide women a private place.
