Anucha Browne, who Isiah Thomas sexual harassed, releases statement & tweets

Anucha Browne, the woman who Isiah Thomas sexual harassed (and said he didn't), has released a statement and a number of damning tweets now that that idiot James Dolan has brought him back. Teri Thompson relays:

“In an attempt to re-write history, the Garden has issued a Statement about Anucha Browne Sanders’ (the name she went by during the case) lawsuit against MSG, Dolan and Thomas that is, at best, misleading and, at worst, a fabrication,” read Browne’s statement, issued through her lawyer, Anne Vladeck. “For example, the Garden describes what occurred to Browne Sanders as mere ‘allegations’ and further claims that these ‘allegations’ were “completely unrelated to (Thomas).”

Browne went on to say that Thomas’ “self-serving denials” led the jurors to find that he “intentionally discriminated against (Browne Sanders) by aiding and abetting a hostile environment based on sex. . . .”

Moreover, the statement continued, “the Garden’s suggestion that the jury somehow exonerated Thomas by failing to award punitive damages against him is simply untrue. To the contrary, six of the seven jurors voted to assess punitive damages against Thomas personally. Had the defendants not settled after the verdict, Thomas would have had to face a retrial on that issue.”

Browne, who described Thomas in her testimony as a foulmouthed bully who went on tirades at a moment’s notice, calling her a “bitch” and “ho” in private conversations, has been largely silent on the case since the settlement was reached in 2008, but clearly felt the need to respond to the Garden’s statement following its announcement that Thomas would be returning to the fold.

Said the Garden: “We did not believe the allegations then, and we don’t believe them now. We feel strongly that the jury improperly and unfairly held Isiah Thomas responsible for sordid allegations that were completely unrelated to him, and for which MSG bore responsibility,” the statement read. “In fact, when given the opportunity, the jury did not find Isiah liable for punitive damages, confirming he did not act maliciously or in bad faith. We believe Isiah belongs in basketball, and are grateful that he has committed his considerable talent to help the Liberty succeed.”

Thomas also said on the Boomer & Carton radio program Tuesday that the jury made no “findings” against him, putting the responsibility largely on the Garden. So Browne took to Twitter.

Sickening that Dolan has made Browne have to relive what that scumbag Thomas did.
