Sister Of Blazers Owner Paul Allen Sued Over Alleged Sexual Comments

Back in September, we noted a report that Portland Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen and his sister Jody, CEO of Vulcan, Inc., were being sued by some of their former bodyguards for "unethical and illegal activities" that led to a "hostile" work environment. June Williams of reports some further details on the allegations by Ramon Sandoval, one of the four bodyguards, on Friday. ----------------------------- "In the short time plaintiff was employed at Vulcan, he and other members of the Executive Protection team were ordered to participate in illegal activities to benefit Paul and Jody Allen." Sandoval says he was also asked to lie about how many hours he worked. "On a trip to the Antarctic, plaintiff was instructed to limit his reporting of time worked to 16 hours per day, no matter how many he worked, which usually exceeded that amount," according to the complaint. Sandoval adds: "Defendant Jody Allen, president and CEO of Vulcan, made repeated inappropriate and sexual comments to, about, and in the presence of plaintiff. "Because of the misrepresentations and other unethical conditions in the workplace, plaintiff felt he could not continue working for Vulcan and resigned April 8, 2011. ----------------------------- Vulcan called the claims "baseless."
