In a public relations nightmare, a federal court jury found Madison Square Garden and James Dolan, its Chairman, liable for sexual harassment, creating a hostile work place and retaliation. The jury apparently credited the account of former MSG executive Anucha Browne Sanders that Knicks coach Isiah Thomas made unwanted sexual advances and directed crude language towards her. The jury awarded $11.6 million dollars including a punitive damages award against Dolan of $3 million dollars. Defiant to the end, Dolan and Thomas vowed to appeal.
