Therapist Hillary Cauthen Comes To Settlement Agreement With Spurs, Joshua Primo
TMZ reports that former Spurs psychologist Hillary Cauthen has reached a settlement agreement with both free agent point guard Joshua Primo, and the San Antonio Spurs organization. In a statement released on Thursday, Houston attorney Tony Buzbee said that all involved parties have agreed to resolve the legal matter.
In addition to being the lead attorney on cases for more than two dozen women alleging sexual misconduct by Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, Buzbee is currently representing plaintiff Darnell Green in a felony battery case against Saints running back Alvin Kamara. Spurs CEO RC Buford issued a statement following the resolution of the suit against the team.
“The situation regarding Josh Primo is a matter we take seriously. Since learning of the allegations, we have taken, and are taking, measures to ensure that all parties involved are treated with dignity and respect. We know that we owe that to Dr. Cauthen, our players, our staff and our community.”
“As an organization, we are continuously evaluating and refining our processes so they ultimately reflect the values and culture of who we aspire to be every day. To that end, we have decided to collaborate with Dr. Cauthen and other experts in an effort to review and improve our workplace processes and procedures. This is a learning opportunity for us, and one that we are certain will make us better moving forward.”
The suit was initially filed approximately two weeks ago, after Primo was waived from the Spurs based on allegations of exposing himself indecently to women multiple times. The player is owed $8.4 million over the next two seasons after going unclaimed on the waiver wire.
