KEN BEHRING SETTLES SEXUAL HARASSMENT LAWSUIT
Published August 14, 1996
Seahawks Owner KEN BEHRING settled a sexual harassment lawsuit brought against him by a former employee, PATRICIA PARKER, according to the SEATTLE TIMES. Although no details of the settlement were released, Parker's attorney, JEFFREY LIPOW, said earlier that Behring's attorneys had offered a settlement "much, much bigger than $100,000." Behring's lawyers claimed Parker's attorneys tried to harass Behring into a large settlement by filing highly sensitive testimony about Behring's private life with the court. The TIMES' John Simerman writes it is "unclear" whether this "alleged" tactic played a part in the outcome (SEATTLE TIMES, 8/13).
