Some say bitter lawsuit harmed public perception of the ANA….

On Wednesday, February 11, 2015, the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and former ANA Executive Director Larry Shepherd jointly announced that the two parties had come to terms on a settlement to end Shephard’s civil litigation against his former employer.

Shepherd served as the Executive Director of the ANA from April 2008 through September 2011.

In an ANA Press release sent to members and media outlets, the ANA acknowledged Shephard’s leadership and accomplishments in helping improve the financial position of the ANA, resolving litigation that was pending at the time of his hire, investigating thefts from the ANA, and promoting the ANA’s membership benefits and conventions.

Terms of the settlement will remain confidential, by agreement of the parties.
