Danny Ferry, the former Hawks General Manager, made the claims. AHBE had an insurance cover of losses related to employment including wrongful termination and workplace torts. The lawsuit states the “insurance company did not acknowledge that it had triggered the policy and they also refused to accept the coverage of the same.” The lawsuit seeks to give an additional 50% penalty for unpaid losses and the coverage of the attorneys’ fees. The current Hawks ownership spokesperson claimed that they were aware of the complaint, but they have did not intend to get involved with the case.
