HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Former ESPN baseball analyst Harold Reynolds sued the network for at least $5 million Tuesday, saying he was wrongly fired after a female intern complained about what he called a "brief and innocuous" hug.
Reynolds joined the sports network in 1996 after a dozen seasons as a major leaguer and was fired July 24. According to his lawsuit, filed in New Britain Superior Court, ESPN terminated his new six-year, $6 million contract without specific reasons.
Does he have a case here?
EDIT: Wait...$6 million? Really? I know he was good, but Harold Reynolds was worth $6 million?
