Former USC football coach Steve Sarkisian filed a lawsuit against the university on Monday alleging he was wrongfully terminated from his position. At the time of his termination, Sarkisian was seeking treatment for alcohol addiction. In the lawsuit, Sarkisian alleges the university fired him without making efforts to accommodate his disability. He could seek up to $30 million in damages.
Attorney Areva Martin joins The Doctors to discuss the lawsuit and whether Mr. Sarkisian could have a legitimate case against the university.
Carol Mauch Amir, general counsel for USC, issued the following statement in response to the lawsuit:
"Much of what is stated in the lawsuit filed today by Steve Sarkisian is patently untrue. While the university does not as a matter of practice comment on personnel matters or litigation, the record will show that Mr. Sarkisian repeatedly denied to university officials that he had a problem with alcohol, never asked for time off to get help, and resisted university efforts to provide him with help. The university made clear in writing that further incidents would result in termination, as it did. We are profoundly disappointed in how Mr. Sarkisian has mischaracterized the facts and we intend to defend these claims vigorously."
