The New York Post is reporting that Rasean Tate, 28, of Brooklyn is suing Levy Restaurant Holdings for civil rights violations stemming from an incident involving the Houston Rockets in 2013. According to the Post:
Tate claims that he was setting up a buffet in the visiting Rockets locker room before a game on Feb. 22, 2013, when he was all but chased from the area because he was gay.
“When the plaintiff’s back was turned to defendant Rockets players, he began to hear laughter and taunting voices saying ‘get this f—– out of here!’ ” according to the suit, and ” ‘He’s trying to catch a sneaky-peeky!’"....
Still reeling two days later, Tate went to Levy catering manager Darcy Tarpia to relay details of the confrontation. He was offered a verbal apology and promised that the situation would be addressed, according to the suit.
The suit, according to the Post, alleges that when he complained he was gradually pulled off assignments involving locker rooms, depriving him of work and income. The Post piece concludes: "Rockets and Levy reps did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the suit."
UPDATE: U.S. ONEXIM Sports and Entertainment, the company that owns the Brooklyn Nets, released this statement this morning:
“Preliminary discussions with the NBA were held in spring, 2013 and, at that time, the League indicated its willingness to work with us in the event we needed to reregister the ownership vehicle of the Nets as a Russian entity to comply with the Russian law regarding candidates for political office. This is a long process which may or may not come to fruition and nothing is imminent. Of course, no steps in this direction could or would be taken without the full knowledge and approval of the NBA. ”
