Looks like the National Basketball Association (NBA) will make up for time lost to the lockout by playing on both the basketball and legal courts for the next few months.
A former NBA security official, Warren Glover, claims his firing last summer was retaliation for reporting sexual harassment incidents. Glover has sued in state court in Manhattan.
Following a law enforcement career with the New York Police Department, Glover joined the NBA in 2001. He consistently received positive reviews and eventually ran security for the NBA Jam Session, a special event at the All-Star Game.
After three female NBA employees complained that other security personnel were downloading pornography on workplace computers and making offensive remarks, Glover passed along those complaints to senior. That’s when he was fired.
