An Air Force Reservist has apparently reached a settlement with U.S. Steel Corp. regarding her claim that the company fired her because of her military deployments.

Sgt. Rebecca Jackanic, 33, of Coraopolis sued the company in July under state and federal laws that protect reservists’ jobs while they’re deployed. She said the company fired her while she was training to become a flight engineer for the 911th Airlift Wing in Moon.

Lawyers for both sides filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit Friday, which usually signals that a case has settled. The motion doesn’t provide any details.

Jackanic’s lawyer, Tim O’Brien, couldn’t immediately be reached for comment. A U.S. Steel spokeswoman said she would have to check before commenting.
