Plantation-based Magic Leap has reached a confidential settlement of a gender bias lawsuit filed by a former executive, Tannen Campbell. Campbell, who was fired in December 2016, had petitioned the court to award unspecified damages, including back pay and reinstatement to her job.

Campbell alleged in a federal court lawsuit that she was hired by the CEO to make the cutting-edge technology company less of a “boys club,” but her efforts were met with resistance. A former vice president of strategic marketing at the privately held technology company, Campbell sued Magic Leap in February. Notice of the settlement was filed on Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Fort Lauderdale and signed by Judge William P. Dimitrouleas. Terms were not disclosed. The lawsuit now is expected to be dismissed.
