Blazers Owner Paul Allen's Security Team Sues Vulcan

49
Levi Pulkkinen of the SeattlePI.com reports that four security officers who had worked for Portland Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen have filed a lawsuit against Vulcan, Inc. claiming the company, Allen and his sister, Jody, were involved in undisclosed "unethical and illegal activities" that led to a "hostile" work environment. ------------------------- The former security director for Vulcan Inc. and three security officers who resigned in recent weeks have sued the Seattle firm claiming they were pushed out after they saw unethical or illegal activities by company executives, including Paul Allen. While the allegations of wrongdoing remain vague, documents filed in King County Superior Court contain claims of ethical problems and misconduct within the company. One former lead bodyguard said she was forced to resign after the "acts (she) witnessed and had to engage in perform (her) job" compromised her ethics. ------------------------- Those filing suit include a former FBI agent and a Navy corpsman. I guess there will be some new faces speaking into their wrist-worn walkie-talkies in the Rose Garden back hallways next season.
