NEW YORK (AP) -- A federal jury resumes deliberations today in the sexual harassment and wrongful firing suit brought against New York Knicks head coach Isiah Thomas.
Anucha Browne Sanders, a former vice president for the Knicks, is suing Thomas and team owner Madison Square Garden for ten million dollars. Brown says the team fired her in retaliation for accusing Thomas of harassment.
She says Thomas used vulgar language toward her and later made unwanted sexual advances.
Thomas' attorney says Browne Sanders offered no witnesses or documentation of his alleged behavior.
It will be up to the jury to decide whether Browne Sanders was harassed.
In her suit, she's seeking reinstatement to her job as vice president of marketing, in addition to the ten million dollars in damages.
