FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) -- A law firm representing a woman at the center of allegations against Kentucky Rep.Jeff Hoover released a statement Monday confirming a settlement.

Hoover, a top Kentucky Republican, announced his resignation Sunday from his position as House speaker but insists he will remain as a representative.

On Monday the woman with whom he reached a settlement had her attorneys release a statement regarding a resolution the pair agreed upon. It reads as follows: 

"The law firm of Clay, Daniel, Walton & Adams PLC releases the following statement for immediate dissemination:

"Our firm represents the complainant concerning the allegations regarding Jeff Hoover, and others. Our client had legitimate concerns about workplace conduct and authorized us to raise these concerns directly with Speaker Hoover. The day after our letter was sent, counsel for Speaker Hoover contacted us and indicated a willingness to meet and discuss issues raised, with a goal of resolving the situation.  

"Shortly thereafter, both sides agreed upon mediation. All parties negotiated in good faith, with a goal of resolving the dispute and ensuring the continued successful employment of our client.  

"As is customary in such disputes, confidentiality was important to all the participants. Our client was not coerced by anyone to resolve the matter, and has been satisfied with the resolution. She looks forward to moving past this matter."
