Minneapolis, MN - Fresh on the heels of former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe's early-week threat to file suit against the Minnesota Vikings for wrongful termination and multiple counts of discrimination, information has surfaced that paints a whole new light on the situation.
After Kluwe and his representative held court on Tuesday afternoon with the media, they met with the members of Minnesota Vikings on Thursday and Friday. The Vikings released their findings via a press release which you can read in its entirety here.
The Vikings responded to each of Kluwe's accusations within the release including the Mike Priefer incident.
For his part in said incident, Vikings special teams coach Mike Priefer will be suspended three regular season games without pay with the option for the Vikings to reduce it to two games provided that Priefer "provided he also attend individualized anti-harassment, diversity and sexual-orientation sensitivity training."
It appears as if Kluwe, who had originally planned on suing the Vikings for religious descrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, defamation and tortuous interference with contract negotiations, will continue with his plans to do so testing his fate in the courts of law.
Never let it be said that I didn't try. Apparently the Vikings want to do this the hard way.— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) July 18, 2014
And yes, shit is about to get real. Unfortunate that it has to come to this.— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) July 18, 2014
Oh, and in case anyone thinks this is some sort of cash grab, we'll be going for max damages and all money I get will go to LBGTQ charities.— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) July 18, 2014
This is not about the money for me. This is about doing what's right.— Chris Kluwe (@ChrisWarcraft) July 18, 2014
Kluwe will reportedly seek nearly $10 million in damages from the Vikings.
