On the recommendation of The Big Lead I read a brief write-up of the Anucha Browne Sanders trainwreck by Andrea Peyser of the New York Post. The title: “Brave Lady Sends Message”. Alrighty. It was pretty not good as TBL pointed out. I just liked some of the quotes, particularly this surprising question/answer.
So I asked Anucha - did she ever regret it? If she had to do it over again, would she take a drink, rather than sue Knick coach Isiah Thomas and Madison Square Garden for sexual harassment?
She did not hesitate.
Really? Given that you asked her this after the judgment, and her options (in hindsight) are as follows:
A. Sue and win over $11 million.
B. Put up with working with terrible, belligerent, tyrannical assholes.
C. Finding another job (probably) for a lot less money
D. “Take a drink” with Isiah Thomas and try to work out their issues. After Thomas and MSG dragged her through some mud during the trial.
I would think A is the choice. But good thing you asked the question, to make sure.
By the way Bill Simmons had a great summary of the trial (pre verdict) here.
