ESPN Sued by Fired Analyst

Former ESPN baseball analyst Harold
Reynolds has filed a $5 million lawsuit claiming breach of contract and unfair dismissal.

Reynolds claims in his complaint, filed yesterday in state
court in New Britain, Connecticut, that ESPN failed to give a
reason for firing him and didn’t properly investigate an
allegation about his giving a female intern what he called "an
innocuous hug."

Reynolds was only 4 months into a 6 year $6 million contract. While this Bloomberg story doesn’t give ESPN’s reason for the firing, the website ‘‘ claims he was fired over accusations only. Sexual Harrassment requires a pattern of occurances, not just one incident, so it looks like the truth will come out in court.
