“The World’s Most Famous Arena” faces a discrimination lawsuit by a suite attendant, Laura Ward, who claims she was denied a prime assignment because of her gender.
Ward claims she was told in 2004 that she would not be assigned to serve food to New York Knicks and Rangers players in Madison Square Garden’s home locker room because she is a woman.
That’s a plum assignment for The Garden’s food-service staff.
