Auriemma seeks to dismiss discrimination suit
Olympic women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma has filed a motion seeking to dismiss the employee discrimination lawsuit brought against him and USA Basketball by a security official.HARTFORD, Conn. -- Olympic women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma has filed a motion seeking to dismiss the employee discrimination lawsuit brought against him and USA Basketball by a security official.
Kelly Hardwick filed the lawsuit in June, alleging that she was being kept off the security detail at the London Olympics after spurning sexual advances from Auriemma on a trip to Russia in 2009. Auriemma has denied the allegations.
Auriemma's attorney, Barry Levy, argues in a brief filed Monday, notes the lawsuit has no merit because Hardwick ended up being assigned to the USA basketball teams and worked at the Olympics.
He also argues that the court does not have jurisdiction over Auriemma, a Connecticut resident.
Hardwick's lawyer, Randolph McLaughlin, said he was not surprised by the filing and he believes the case has merit.
