REPORT OF LAWSUIT AGAINST VIKINGS COACHES GOES PUBLIC

     On Saturday, ESPN noted a story in the ST. PAUL PIONEER
PRESS that Vikings coach Dennis Green and assistant coach Richard
Solomon were named in a 1993 lawsuit "alleging the coaches
participated in sexually inappropriate behavior toward women."
The suit was filed by a former employee of the Vikings.  KSTP-TV
in Minneapolis reported that the team settled out of court and
that neither Green nor the team admitted guilt in the matter, but
felt it was in their best interests to settle.  The Vikings
released a statement: "We have had a formal and comprehensive
anti-harassment policy, with training, in place since June of
1993.  There has not been a single complaint under the Vikings
anti-harassment policy since the adoption of that policy" (ESPN,
1/29).
