Knicks, Isiah Thomas Settle Sexual Harassment Suit


According to the AP, the NY Knicks and Isiah Thomas have settled their sexual harassment lawsuit with former MSG executive Anucha Browne Sanders. "I am extremely pleased that we have reached a settlement," Browne Sanders said in a statement. "The jury's verdict in this case sent a powerful and enduring message that harassment and retaliation at Madison Square Garden will not be tolerated. ... It has been a long journey, but I believe that justice has been done." Thomas had a brief statement regarding the decision. "As I have said before, I am completely innocent," Thomas said. "This decision doesn't change that. However, this is the best course for Madison Square Garden, and I fully support it." MSG and the Knicks would have been forced to pay $11.6 Million in punitive damages or appeal the decision. The NY Post and 1050 ESPN Radio are both reporting the settlement at $11.5 Million.
