Lawsuit against Auriemma, NBA focus of CNN show

The pending employee discrimination lawsuit filed against Geno Auriemma, the NBA and USA Basketball will be addressed on the Anderson Cooper show which will air on CNN from 8-9 p.m.

Word I'm hearing is that nobody from UConn was approached by CNN for comment or to be a guest on the show and there is nothing on Cooper's site or twitter feed specifying the focus of the segment. Perhaps it will be a chance for NBA security official Kelley Hardwick and/or her attorney to tell their side of the story but I guess we'll have to tune in to see what comes out of the show.

UPDATE AT 9 P.M.: I sat through the 8-9 p.m. show which I thought was going to include a segment on the lawsuit referenced above but there was nothing on the subject. I have to admit to never having watched any Anderson Cooper show. There is another one of his shows slated to run from 10-11 p.m. but on his official site has no mention of Geno Auriemma or Kelley Hardwick but does mention an interview with the cast of "Sister Wives." I am sure the folks at UConn will have no problem with "Sister Wives" interviews on the show if it means less publicity on the lawsuit Auriemma is facing. I guess there's nothing else to say except "stay tuned."
