Officials of the Pennsylvania city are paying $19,000 to a woman who was busted for cursing at her overflowing toilet.
Scranton is also paying Dawn Herb's legal fees.
She was arrested last year after a neighbor, an off-duty police officer, heard a string of her blue language through an open window.
But a judge found her innocent on disorderly conduct charges, saying she has a constitutional right to cuss in her own home.
The American Civil Liberties Union announced the settlement yesterday.
