REPORT OF LAWSUIT AGAINST VIKINGS COACHES GOES PUBLIC
Published January 30, 1995
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).
