NEW YORK (AP) -Madison Square Garden settled Wednesday with a former New York Rangers cheerleader who sued for sexual discrimination, avoiding the potential of another embarrassing trial.
Courtney Prince was fired in January 2004. She later claimed MSG failed to properly protect the dozen skating cheerleaders from being touched inappropriately when they went into the crowd at games and required them to be glamorous and to wear padded bras, fake eyelashes and hairpieces.
A statement released on her behalf said: ``We resolved this matter with no admission of wrongdoing on the part of any party, and I will have no further comment.''
Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
Madison Square Garden refused to settle with former Knicks team executive Anucha Browne Sanders when she accused coach Isiah Thomas and MSG of sexual harassment. Instead, she was awarded $11.6 million in October after a trial that embarrassed the organization and the NBA.
MSG eventually settled for $11.5 million shortly before both sides were to return to court for the punitive phase.
