Sterling Is Sued for Harassment


Clipper owner Donald Sterling was sued for sexual harassment Tuesday in Los Angeles by a former employee.

Sumner Davenport, a property supervisor at Sterling’s Beverly Hills Properties, was fired in 2002. The suit also seeks damages for wrongful termination.

Davenport said that while she worked for him, Sterling made “unwanted and offensive physical conduct” that included hugging, kissing and touching her chest.


In the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Davenport says Sterling at times unbuttoned his pants and “adjust(ed) himself” while she sat across the desk from him.

A call to Sterling’s Beverly Hills office Tuesday night was not immediately returned.
