BATON ROUGE - Louisiana has paid at least $1.3 million to settle more than two dozen sexual harassment claims since mid-2009.
  
Some of the allegations were made against college professors, judges and a former state lawmaker.
  
The money was paid through Louisiana's self-insurance program, the Office of Risk Management. Data was provided to The Associated Press and other media outlets in response to public records requests.
  
Payments range from $5,500 for a claim involving a Grambling State University professor to $150,000 for a claim against a New Orleans judge. A $50,000 payment was made to settle a claim against a Baton Rouge area lawmaker who resigned in 2013.
  
The information doesn't include details of the conduct alleged.
