New York Knicks Lose Sexual Harassment Lawsuit
A jury decided Tuesday October 2, 2007, that New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas sexually harassed a former top team executive, subjecting her to unwanted advances and a barrage of verbal insults, but also said he does not have to pay punitive damages. The jury did find that Madison Square Garden committed harassment against the woman, and decided that she is entitled to punitive damages from MSG. Thomas, who is married with two children, acknowledged trying to kiss Browne Sanders in December 2005, asking her "No love today?" Associated Press.
