A federal jury has decided that Madison Square Garden and its chairman must pay 11.6 million dollars in damages to former New York Knicks executive Anucha Browne Sanders.

The 44-year-old mother of three sued both MSG and New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas for sexual harassment. Both were found guilty by the same jury, although it ruled Thomas does not have to pay punitive damages.

Browne Sanders' case presented the Garden as an "Animal House" in sneakers, a place where nepotism, sexism, crude remarks and crass language were part of the culture.
