Suit: NBA fired me for relaying women's complaints

NEW YORK (AP) — A former NBA security director says he was forced out of his job because he stuck up for women who made sex-harassment and discrimination accusations against colleagues.

Warren Glover sued the league and three current and former security executives Thursday in a Manhattan court. A league spokesman didn't immediately respond to an email message.

Glover started working for the league in 2001. He says he earned praise during his first few years. But he says he got bad evaluations after reporting three female employees' allegations to bosses.

Glover eventually gave a deposition helpful to one of the women. She later settled a federal suit against the league on undisclosed terms.

Glover says he was fired in July.
