ESPN AND HAROLD REYNOLDS SETTLE LAWSUIT

April 16, 2008

Broadcaster, Harold Reynolds, has settled his wrongful termination lawsuit against ESPN.

Reynolds was fired by the sports network in July of 2006 for sexual harassment. He claimed his termination was over a “brief and innocuous hug” with a female intern.

Said Reynolds,

“This is a matter of principal. And I stood on principle and never wavered. All of my goals were met, and now I look forward to concentrating on the game I love.”

An ESPN spokesperson countered,

“The settlement was a fraction of his demands and substantially less than what it would have cost to litigate the case. Our confidence in both the appropriateness of our action and our legal position never wavered. The resolution allows us to spare the people involved further difficult disruptions to their lives and is economically compelling to ESPN.”

Reynolds now works for mlb.com.
