PATRIOTS FACE LAWSUIT FROM FORMER CHEERLEADING COORDINATOR
Published October 14, 1994
Lisa Coles, director of the Patriots cheerleaders for three years until July, has filed a $100,000 lawsuit against the club over her firing. In the civil suit, Coles claims that Patriots management demanded that she outfit her cheerleaders in "more suggestive and skimpier" two-piece uniforms and that she change the dance music to "rock rather than that of black artists." Coles attorney Fred Golder said that Coles is looking for the $100,000 she anticipated making this year in commissions, as well as punitive damages, including for emotional distress: "She anticipates losing $300,000." Patriots Public Relations Director Don Lowery dismissed Coles' suit: "This lawsuit has no merit. It is a very minor issue. You sometimes make changes when there is a new owner" (Jim Greenridge, BOSTON GLOBE, 10/13).
