Isiah, Garden Found Guilty in Sexual Harassment Trial


The Associated Press reports:

A jury ruled Tuesday that New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas sexually harassed a top team executive, subjecting the married mother of three to unwanted advances and a barrage of verbal insults.

The jury also found that Madison Square Garden committed harassment against the woman, and ruled that MSG should have to pay her punitive damages.

You gotta wonder how a management team that drafted so well in the NBA lottery allowed a case like this to go to trial. Anucha Browne Sanders, the fired marketing exec who sued for $10 million, was awarded $11.6 million.
