NJ Woman Sues NBA for Gender Discrimination

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

A New Jersey woman who worked for the NBA as a senior account executive filed a $3 million gender discrimination lawsuit against the league.

In the federal suit, Brynn Cohn of Hoboken said she and two other women with young children were forced out of their jobs because of what she described as a hostile environment toward working mothers.

Cohn worked at the NBA for the last decade. 

She was a senior account manager for print projects until her lawyers say she was forced to resign last year.

A spokesman for the NBA did not immediately return a message for comment.
