DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A judge has ordered Iowa to rehire two former transportation department managers who were fired in 2012 and pay nearly $900,000, but the state is appealing the ruling.

The state Public Employment Relations Board decided that Steven Scott and Ken Morrow should be reinstated to their jobs at an Osceola garage that maintains state vehicles.

The judge also ordered the state to pay back pay, legal fees and other compensation.

State officials declined to discuss details of the case.

The two men successfully argued that the other employees at the garage treated them like outsiders and resented the fact that they were hired as managers. The judge said several state employees lied as part of an effort to end Scott and Morrow's careers.
