The Warriors and guard Monta Ellis are being sued by a former employee for sexual harassment.

According to an email from the Law Offices of Burton F. Boltuch, the plaintiff will file the suit Wednesday morning in Oakland at the Superior Court of Alameda County. Afterward, a press conference will be held to discuss the allegations.

According to Boltuch, the plaintiff is accusing Ellis of sexually harassing her from November 2010 to January 2011. The accuser, according to Boltuch, has photo evidence of the harrassment, which he claims was sent from Ellis’ cell phone to the plaintiff.

The photo will be revealed – along with the identity of the accuser – at the press conference, Boltuch said.

“You will be shocked when you see it,” Boltuch said. “It’s pretty disgusting and graphic.”

The Warriors are being accused of covering for Ellis. Boltuch alleges his client was let go “because they wanted to cover it up.”

Boltuch said his client tried to resolve the matter previously, but the Warriors refused.

Man! I really thought Monta would be that one athlete who really was truly worth being a role model....


I'm being incredibly facetious. Nothing surprises me at all any more. I'm more surprised when athletes aren't exemplary people.

So you don't want Ellis anymore because of this?

I personally only care about what he does on the court

Uh...so far, no.


I don't think much will come from this right now. Maybe if more unravels, but as of now, I don't see any immediate repercussions.

Sucks for Marc Jackson, though. Rookie coach that's trying to build an identity and a reputation for the team and himself and this pops up before the season even begins.

How's it trying to make a quick buck when she claims she have pictures that she's going to bring up in court.

She got fired, and if they can prove (or convince a jury) that the organization fired her to cover up Ellis' actions...They could get ****ed.

Really? If Monta is your boy then thats ****ed up. What are we in 8th grade? Its the same story. We've heard it a million times. "Star athlete sends [employee, cheerleader, dancer, etc] explicit photo." These guys are rockstars, man. Some of them truly aren't role models.

I don't wanna pull a Jim Boeheim here, but A LOT of the time these accusers are just looking for an easy pay day.

I'm not all about Monta, but i can tell you this - If it was 'Melo, or Amar'e (didn't Amar'e supposedly do this?!) i wouldn't care one way or another. It has nothing to do with basketball.

Pay the fine, pay the lawyers, whatever, and be done with it.

I call BS. She was fired from the Warriors, she is targeting who she thinks is the best player on the team to hurt the Warriors the most and Monta wouldn't do that **** when he is married to a police officer. Oh and the timing. Very suspicious timing.

Well of course you're going to say that, though, you're a fan of the team.

She claims to have pictures and evidence, so :shrug:

I've been on the fence for trading Monta for awhile. I just think if this becomes a distraction, its not worth what he brings to the team. Let's see all the details come out tomorrow first.

My guess is Monta had an affair with her and Monta did send the pics, she tried to blackmail Monta or else she'd tell his wife, the Warriors found out and fired her, and this is the only move for her to make.

Either way Monta will come out looking like a scumbag.

Monta is beast

Monta Ellis is a bad, bad player. Not only does he do cruel acts outside of basketball but on the court he always gets easy layups and uncontested shots. Just absolutely unfair.I already didn't like Ellis but with this great article it just proves my thoughts correct.

Demarcus Cousins isn't exactly an example of a model teammate either.

Okay after reading the report... She is looking for a pay day. I'm wondering how did Ellis get her # and such. She gave it to him knowing what was gonna happen, he was married and she knew that. She knew she was a side piece.

Maybe the firing was wrong. I can see that... but there is no sexual harassment case here. I doubt Monta would randomly send revealing pics of himself to her without a sign from here. She maybe deleted her text to him but kept his.

This thread title or the premise of the article doesn't make much sense.

Monta Ellis didn't employ her, it was the Golden State Warriors. Really he is not the one in the wrong here. Co-workers hit on co-workers all the time. It's up to a boss to stop it, and for them not to fire someone who did no wrong.
