Monta Ellis and Golden State Warriors involved in sexual harassment lawsuit

A sexual harassment lawsuit has been filed against Monta Ellis and the Golden State Warriors.

The suit was filed in Alameda County Superior Court on Wednesday morning, alleging Ellis, 26, Guard for the Warriors, sexually harassed a former employee between November 2010 and January 2011.

According to the victim’s attorney, Burton Boltuch, there is evidence that Ellis sent his client inappropriate text messages at all times of the night, including one with an image that was sent from his cell phone.

Ellis, who was recently married and is a father, never had a physical relationship with the employee but the Warriors are being accused of covering up the sexual harassment incident and firing the employee in retaliation of the complaint. the employee worked in the team’s community relations department for four years.

“They said they laid her off because they didn’t need her,” said Boltuch. “We don’t know of anyone else who’d been laid off.”

Boltuch tried to settle with the team but his efforts failed.
