Lawyers for Geno Auriemma refile motion to dismiss lawsuit

Lawyers for UConn women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma refiled their motion to dismiss security officer Kelley Hardwick's employee discrimination lawsuit citing a lack of personal jurisdiction.

It is similar to the initial counter filed by Auriemma's representatives to Hardwick's lawsuit which alleges that Auriemma attempted to use his influence to have Hardwick removed from security detail for the U.S. Olympic women's basketball team's games. Since the lawsuit was filed in New York, Auriemma's contention is that since Hardwick's claim that Auriemma attempted to kiss her happened in a hallway of a Russian hotel and Auriemma neither lives nor conducts business in the state of New York, the court doesn't have the right to hear his case.

The initial motion to dismiss was removed when Hardwick's attorney filed an amended complaint in an attempt to counter the lack of jurisdiction claim.
