OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The attorney for a former Golden State Warriors employee who accused former star guard Monta Ellis of sexual harassment says a settlement has been reached in her lawsuit against the team.
Burt Boltuch, the attorney for Erika Smith, told The Associated Press on Friday that he is not allowed to discuss specifics of the settlement, which was reached last month. Boltuch said discussions with the Warriors' attorneys began shortly after Ellis was traded from the Warriors to the Milwaukee Bucks in March.
Erika Smith worked as community relations director for the Warriors. She accused Ellis of sending her unwanted text messages that included a photo of his genitals and said the team's owners attempted to cover up his actions.
Team spokesman Ray Rider said all of Smith's claims have now been dismissed in their entirety.
