Katz, Marshall & Banks partner Lisa Banks is representing a Major League Baseball employee, who earlier this year reported that Hall of Fame player Roberto Alomar had committed sexual misconduct in 2014.
Following an investigation, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred announced that Alomar had been fired as a consultant by Major League Baseball, and placed on the league’s ineligible list. Also, the Toronto Blue Jays fired Alomar as a special assistant, and stated that it is severing ties with Alomar, removing him for the club’s Level of Excellence, and taking down his banner from Rogers Centre.
“We applaud MLB for having this matter thoroughly investigated and for taking meaningful action against Mr. Alomar,” Ms. Banks said in a statement. “My client commends other baseball industry survivors who have come forward, and who helped her feel safer in sharing her own terrible and life-altering experience.”
