Appeal denied in case against UConn's Auriemma

On the same day that UConn coach Geno Auriemma was winning a record ninth national title, the appeal of the employee discrimination suit filed against him by security officer Kelley Hardiwck was dismissed.

The court ruled that "their motions were granted on the basis that the discriminatory acts alleged took place outside of New York by nonresidents and the conduct alleged had no impact in New York."

The case was originally dismissed in April of 2013 but attorneys representing Hardwick immediately filed an appeal.

Hardwick accused Auriemma of making unwanted advances to her in a hotel in Russia where Auriemma was coaching the U.S. Senior National team and Hardwick was part of the security detail. When Hardwick was not placed on security detail for the women's basketball competition at the 2012 Olympics, Hardwick accused Auriemma, USA Basketball and the NBA for not assigning her to that detail as retribution for refusing Auriemma's advances.

Auriemma has denied the accusations and now he can put this behind him with the dismissal of the case.
