A jury ruled Tuesday that New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas sexually harassed a top team executive, subjecting the married mother of three to unwanted advances and a barrage of verbal insults.
But the jury also ruled that Thomas does not have to pay punitive damages to the woman, giving him a partial victory after an ugly, three-week trial.
The jury did find that Madison Square Garden committed harassment against the woman, and ruled that she is entitled to damages from MSG. U.S. District Judge Gerard E. Lynch called it an "imminently reasonable" verdict and said the jury of four women and three men will be asked to return later in the day to hear brief arguments on punitive damages against MSG.
