A openly gay former Cape May police officer reportedly has  settled a discrimination lawsuit against the Jersey Shore town for $369,000.

Steven Pascal claimed he was "subjected the most vile anti-gay slurs and other discriminatory conduct by members of the public" and that the city "did not take the appropriate remedial action," according to NJ Civil Settlements, which first reported the story.

Pascal claimed that he complained about the decade-long pattern of slurs to then Chief of Police Diane Sorentino who declined to take any action.  

At one point, two city residents called him various homophobic slurs and threatened to "snap his neck in a dark alley."

Pascal worked for the West Cape May police from 1998 until 2001 when the department was disbanded. He was then hired by Cape May the next year, according to NJ.com. 

Pascal was eventually fired in 2013, allegedly for failing to follow proper procedure when he responded to a minor car accident.

The Press of Atlantic City wrote in 2015 that Pascal more recently lived in Philadelphia and worked as a flight attendant.
