An L.A. County Superior Court jury rejected claims by a former employee of Clippers owner Donald T. Sterling that he fired her for turning down his sexual advances. The jury determined after the nine-week trial that Sterling had not sexually harassed and then retaliated against Sumner Davenport, hired in 2001 as a property supervisor for apartments and other buildings owned by his Beverly Hills Properties. Sterling said in court records that Davenport got tired of her job over her 11 months of employment, resulting in her “vindictively hatching a scheme to discredit, harass and embarrass” him and his company. His legal team said she had tried unsuccessfully to file a stress-related workers’ compensation claim. John F. Denove, Davenport’s attorney, said Friday the workers’ compensation issue was pending. He said he talked to jurors who told him they didn’t believe Sterling’s account but believed Sterling had corroborating evidence and that Davenport didn’t.

Allen was released on a $150,000 bond. He will only be allowed to travel for work purposes and was ordered back to court for a preliminary hearing Oct. 26, said Tom Stanton, a spokesman for the state’s attorney’s office. Allen’s attorney, Michael Zaslavsky, said the player is not considered a suspect in the shooting. Zaslavsky said Allen has been in jail since Wednesday, when he voluntarily went to a Chicago police station to meet with investigators. One man was shot in the left arm and left side Aug. 29 when gunfire erupted during an early-morning fight at the White Palace Grill, police said. Allen was drafted by the Celtics 25th overall in 2004 and started 34 games as a rookie. He averaged 6.4 points and 2.9 rebounds. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!
