GUOKAS TESTIMONY COULD BE KEY IN CASE AGAINST MAGIC
Published January 30, 1996
Former Magic Coach Matt Guokas is expected to take the stand today in the trial of George Scholz, who claims the team fired him solely to hire a black assistant coach. Guokas' testimony "could play a pivotal role in the trial," according to Gene Yasuda of the ORLANDO SENTINEL. Scholz has testified that Guokas "could confirm Scholz's story that Magic officials plotted to fire him" in '92. During the first two weeks of the trial, Scholz's lawyers "have produced evidence supporting Scholz's claim that he was, indeed, an assistant coach," but have not "corroborated the claim that he was fired unjustly. That could change with Guokas' testimony" (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 1/30).
