A former San Antonio Spurs scientific psychologist has agreed to settle a lawsuit filed towards the group and Joshua Primo, who allegedly uncovered himself to her 9 occasions.
Primo, the twelfth choose within the 2021 NBA Draft, was launched final month as a result of what he cited as “earlier trauma.”
It was then revealed that the discharge stemmed from a number of allegations of exposing himself to ladies, together with group staffers.
Dr. Hillary Cauthen employed legal professional Tony Buzbee to defend her after she claimed that Primo had exposed himself nine times to her — Buzbee is the legal professional for the two-dozen ladies who issued sexual misconduct claims towards Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson.
“The events have agreed to resolve this matter,” Buzbee told ESPN in an email. “Your complete case is over and now we have no additional remark.”
Cauthen filed the lawsuit on Oct. 3, including that the group “ignored her repeated experiences” of the incidents.
“The state of affairs relating to Josh Primo is a matter we take critically,” Spurs CEO R.C. Buford stated in an announcement launched Thursday. “Since studying of the allegations, now we have taken, and are taking, measures to make sure that all events concerned are handled with dignity and respect. We all know we owe that to Dr. Cauthen, our gamers, our workers and our group.”
“As a company, we’re repeatedly evaluating and refining our processes so that they in the end mirror the values and tradition of who we aspire to be every single day. To that finish, now we have determined to collaborate with Dr. Cauthen and different consultants in an effort to evaluate and enhance our office processes and procedures. This can be a studying alternative for us, and one which we’re sure will make us higher transferring ahead.”
Primo was launched lower than three weeks after the Spurs picked up his third-year choice, which assured him $4.3 million for the 2023-2024 season.
The Spurs are 6-9 and ranked thirteenth within the Western Convention.
Primo cleared waivers and is a free agent.
