NORFOLK (AP) -- A former Norfolk employee won't have to repay the city salary and benefits that she collected during a 12-year paid suspension.

Media outlets report that U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Frank J. Santoro discharged Jill McGlone's debt to the city on Tuesday.

McGlone filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy earlier this year.

She formerly worked for the Norfolk Community Service Board. The board placed her on paid suspension in 1998. She collected more than $300,000 in pay and benefits until she was fired in 2010.

The city had tried to collect money from McGlone and several other former employees.

Mayor Paul Fraim says the city is out of options. City Attorney Bernard Pishko says the city hasn't decided how to proceed.
