A former National Basketball Association security official is suing the league, alleging that he was fired for warning his superiors that women in the office were being sexually harassed or discriminated against.
Warren Glover, 50, filed a lawsuit in New York State Supreme Court Thursday morning accusing senior N.B.A. security officials of creating a hostile environment and being denied promotions because of his willingness to speak out.
In one instance, Glover said a senior security official made sexual advances toward a female colleague, then demeaned her publicly when she rejected his advances. In another, a different security official proposed using sexually inappropriate material as part of a presentation to N.B.A. players.
