SEAHAWKS OWNER HIT WITH SEXUAL HARASSMENT SUIT
Published April 16, 1996
Seahawks Owner Ken Behring "was accused of sexual assault and battery" in a civil suit filed in Contra Costa, CA, Superior Court yesterday, according to the L.A. TIMES. Patricia Barker, who worked in Behring's Blackhawk, CA, offices and managed his finances, claims to have faced more than two years of "sexual innuendo and verbal sexual harassment before Behring allegedly assaulted her in January." Behring calls the suit "a thinly- veiled attempt at extortion" (Jody Berger, L.A. TIMES, 4/16).
