(Newser) – The PR debacle may only be beginning for James Dolan and Madison Square Garden, as sexual harassment charges have been filed by another employee—a former captain of the Rangers' cheerleading squad. Courtney Prince, 29, claims she was pestered for sex by a Rangers public relations manager at a bar in 2003 and then fired when she refused to comply.

A team-hired psychiatrist diagnosed her as manic and hypersexual, and the team put together a dossier of damning testimony depicting Prince as sex-obsessed; however, some of it may have been coerced. Remarked Prince's lawyer: “Maybe it’s not in their DNA to care if they look bad in the public eye as long as people buy tickets.”
