BOSTON GLOBE REPORTS NO SETTLEMENT YET OF BOSOX BIAS DISPUTE
Published February 2, 1998
A "leading civil rights activist has dropped efforts to help" the Red Sox negotiate a settlement with a former employee who says he was the target of racial harassment from co-workers, "accusing the team of failing to deal in good faith," according to Adrian Walker of the BOSTON GLOBE. Rev. Charles Stith, President of the Organization for a New Equality, said that he was asked by attorneys for the former employee, Thomas Sneed, to try to mediate the dispute. But Stith said that he was "rebuffed" by the Red Sox when he approached team CEO John Harrington about settling. According to Stith, he and Harrington discussed the case for about a week "before Harrington told him he would rather go to court than settle" (Adrian Walker, BOSTON GLOBE, 1/31).
