WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Westchester County legislators approved a $2.8 million settlement last week in a four-year-old  lawsuit involving a worker at the County Courthouse.

Joseph Gragnaniello, 38, a heating and air conditioning mechanic working for Unity Mechanical Corporation, reportedly fell from a six-foot ladder while repairing a boiler in the basement of 111 Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd. in May 2013.

The county reportedly settled to avoid a costlier jury trial.

The building is owned by The Dormitory Authority of the State of New York, but is leased to Westchester County.
