Thomas Trial Trivia

Forward connections pop up in the strangest places. The latest: the Isiah Thomas trial. Anne Vladeck, the lawyer who represented Anucha Browne Sanders in the sexual harassment suit against New York Knicks coach Thomas and the team’s owner, Madison Square Garden, is none other than the granddaughter of B. Charney Vladeck, general manager of the Jewish Daily Forward from 1918 to 1938.

The jury ruled this week that Thomas and MSG were guilty of sexual harassment and that MSG improperly fired Browne Sanders from her $260,000-a-year job with the team.

The jury also ordered MSG and its chairman to pay Browne Sanders $11.6 million.
