After ruling in favor of Anucha Browne Sanders, a jury has additionally determined that MSG and the Knicks owe Sanders $11.6 million in damages for wrongful termination and condoning a hostile work environment in which she was sexually harassed.
The Garden owes $6 million for condoning a hostile work environment and $2.6 million for retaliation. [Chairman James] Dolan owes $3 million. Though Thomas is off the hook for any damages, he leaves the case with a tarnished image.
Yes, now Isiah's image is tarnished. Before this it was all smooth sailing. He was always getting good press, taking frequent breaks from running basketball leagues and NBA franchises into the ground to volunteer at soup kitchens and read to children with cancer. On Sundays he'd go to Catholic AND Protestant services, just to be safe. And who can forget his peace mission to Palestine?
Nah I'm kidding. He's still a jackass. But the good thing is that with his gross incompetence, history of sexual harassment, and warm smile, he'll make an excellent politician. Americans like to vote for people with warm smiles. It means you can really trust them, you know?
