Madison Square Garden back in the penalty box

Still reeling from a protracted, embarrassing trial and punishing verdict in Anucha Browne Sanders’ sexual harassment suit against New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas, Madison Square Garden (MSG) has quietly settled a sexual harassment lawsuit with former New York Rangers cheerleader Courtney Prince for an undisclosed amount.

Both sides published statements saying the matter had been resolved with “no admission of wrongdoing on the part of any party.” The EEOC had recommended MSG pay $800,000 to Prince, who alleged she endured unwanted sexual advances and was fired for warning fellow cheerleaders that one manager was a sexual predator.

But for MSG, the penalties may not end there, as two female former security supervisors also have filed a federal lawsuit accusing the company of race discrimination. The women allege MSG gave white employees more favorable assignments, schedules and better pay. When they complained, the employee relations department failed to investigate or take action, the women say.
