Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has been sued after allegedly firing a pregnant female employee. And now, that employee’s mom is on the warpath.
Diana Broda claims Kareem canned her daughter in December 2005. The suit, filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleges Broda’s daughter was pregnant at the time and was “wrongfully terminated.”
In an unusual twist, the employee (Broda’s daughter) is not the one suing. Instead, Diana Broda claims she worked for a law firm that represented Abdul-Jabbar. Broda says she contacted Jabbar and his company Ain Jeem and threatened to file suit when her daughter was fired. Broda says Kareem and Ain Jeem then went on the attack, contacting the law firm where she worked, which promptly fired her.
