Towards the end of 2016, there was a lawsuit filed against New Hampshire Insurance Company. The reason for that was the breaching of a contract which involved the settlement of claims. The settlements were made by Mr. Danny Ferry who used to works as general manager. The lawsuit was filed by The Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC (AHBE).
Mr. Bruce Levenson is a former controlling partner who was a part of the AHBE. The current Hawks group is not involved in the lawsuit, and neither is the leader Mr. Tony Ressler. The lawsuit was filed on 13 Sept. in the Superior Court of Fulton County. The insurance company described it as a civil action. The Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC made claims that they were supposed to be covered by a policy related to certain losses which had to do with employment practices. Some of the practices included Workplace Torts as well as Wrongful Termination, but the policy had not been limited to those two acts alone.
In relation to the events, a spokesman of the Hawks ownership presently stated on Forbes Media that the Hawks group was completely aware of the events and the lawsuit. The spokesman added that neither of the two parties had any lasting ties to the current Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC. The spokesman made clear that the current AHBE will not be making any comments on the matter either as they have not been involved in the lawsuit in any way.
Mr. Bruce Levenson co-founded United Communications Group and worked at the company as a Partner. He owns Atlanta Spirit, LLC and a few other companies and organizations as well. He attended the Washington University in St. Louis from which he graduated with a bachelor’s degree and the American University from which he earned a JD.
