Hartford Courant Posts Geno Complaint, NBA and USAB Get Slammed Too

The Hartford Courant has posted a .pdf file of the complaint by Kelley Hardwick against Geno Auriemma. The Geno Auriemma stuff is what will fascinate most women's basketball followers regardless of whether or not the allegations are true.

Hardwick has demanded a jury trial. I suspect Hardwick knows what she's doing as she is a law school graduate.

However, Auriemma is not the only defendant. USA Basketball and the National Basketball Association are also going to take a hit. The NBA gets a hit because several males were promoted over Hardwick for security duty and Hardwick alleges a pattern of sex-based discrimination. Furthermore, Hardwick complained about the Auriemma incident to the NBA but there was no follow up.

The incident happened while Hardwick was providing security for USA Basketball. They get hit because Hardwick alleges that Auriemma went through USA Basketball executive director Jim Tooley to have Hardwick removed from the USA women's basketball team security in London in 2012.

The defendants in question are being sued under the New York State Human Rights Law and the New York City Human Rights Law. Hardwick is asking for punitive damages as defendant's actions "were committed intentionally, wantonly, and with malice, warranting the imposition of punitive damages."
