Lawsuit Filed Against James L. Dolan Seeks Dismissal Amidst Sexual Assault Allegations

Lawyers representing James L. Dolan, the chairman and CEO of Madison Square Garden and the Sphere, have filed a motion to dismiss a sexual assault lawsuit brought against him by a masseuse named Kellye Croft. Croft alleges that Dolan engaged her in a sexual relationship and hired her as a massage therapist during the Eagles tour in late 2013, where Dolan’s band J.D. and the Straight Shot served as the opening act. Additionally, Croft claims that Dolan’s close friend, Harvey Weinstein, who is also named as a co-defendant in the lawsuit, sexually assaulted her during the tour.

In response to the allegations, Dolan’s legal team has vehemently denied the claims, stating that some individuals, due to their status, become targets for opportunists seeking financial gain. They further assert that Croft’s accusations are entirely fabricated. The lawyers representing Dolan also argue that he played no role in facilitating or enabling Weinstein’s interaction with Croft.

Croft’s lawsuit alleges that Dolan was instrumental in arranging a meeting between her and Weinstein, leading to the assault on January 21, 2014. In a statement released in January, Croft expressed her desire for accountability and justice, stating that Dolan manipulated and abused her before setting her up for Weinstein’s attack.

E. Danya Perry, Dolan’s attorney, has previously stated that there is no merit to any of the allegations against her client. Perry claims that Croft and Dolan had a friendship, and the references to Weinstein are intended to incite emotions and appear plagiarized from previous cases against the disgraced producer. Perry argues that the lawsuit is an act of retaliation by an attorney who has unsuccessfully pursued multiple cases against Dolan.

Perry concludes by asserting that there is compelling evidence to support Dolan’s innocence, emphasizing that this is not a mere he said/she said situation. The legal team looks forward to presenting their evidence in court.

  1. Ugh, lawyers representing James L.? Just the thought of it makes my skin crawl. Lawyers are notorious for their slimy tactics and their ability to twist the truth to benefit their clients. It’s sickening to think that someone like James L. would need legal representation, implying that he’s involved in some shady business or has done something wrong. I can’t help but feel disgusted by the whole situation. Lawyers often prioritize winning over justice, and it’s infuriating to see them manipulate the system
