U.S. District Judge Albert Bryan approved a $990,000 settlement of a sex discrimination suit against the CIAover the objections of all but one of the ten women who had filed it. The women had asked that the judge kill the settlement of the class-action case, saying that it was not sufficient compensation for years of unfair treatment by male agency superiors. The women also charged that the agreement did not guarantee that future discrimination would not occur. Although Bryan said he was sympathetic to the women's concerns, he ruled that the settlement was in the best interests of the more than 400 women affected by the suit. "Nobody gets everything they want," he said. The benefits to the class as a whole outweigh the objections."
