More political headlines from the weekend:

--N.C. State University has reached an out-of-court settlement with former First Lady Mary Easley over her abrupt firing three years ago in a deal that more than doubled her state pension payment, according to interviews and documents.

--North Carolina's utilities regulator was scheduled Monday to endorse a settlement ending its investigation into whether Duke Energy misled officials before they approved its takeover of its largest rival.

--A raft of new laws addressing crime and punishment take effect on Saturday, including a move widening a three-year-old North Carolina statute criminalizing cyberbullying to protect school employees.

--Gov. Bev Perdue will ask state leaders to lease the 325-acre Dorothea Dix Hospital campus to the city of Raleigh for as much as $68million over 75 years, a decade-in-the-making deal to create a destination park near downtown.
