Settlement reached in suit against Warriors, Monta EllisPosted by Inside Hoops
A former Golden State Warriors employee has reached a settlement in a sexual harassment lawsuit against the team and former Warriors guard Monta Ellis that alleged Ellis sent her unwanted texts that included a photo of his genitals.
Erika Smith, a former community relations director for the Warriors, and the team settled out of court last month, her lawyer said Friday.
Attorney Burt Boltuch said he is not allowed to discuss specifics of the settlement. Boltuch said discussions with the Warriors’ attorneys began shortly after Ellis was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks in March.
“All I can say is that the matter is dismissed,” Boltuch said Friday. “Ms. Smith is looking to move on with her career.”
