NEW YORK -- Knicks guard Stephon Marbury testified yesterday in the case of a fired team executive who has accused coach Isiah Thomas of sexual harassment, calling the lawsuit absurd while downplaying an encounter with a drunken intern. After hearing about the lawsuit brought by Anucha Browne Sanders, "I laughed," Marbury said in U.S. District Court. "It was more of a joke than anything." Browne Sanders says she is owed her vice president position back and at least $10 million for enduring a sexually harassing workplace for five years.

Charles Casey, a former pastor who used to live in Maryland, is suing Best Buy and its Geek Squad computer repair service for allegedly making negligent repairs on his computer, which caused it to shock him severely as soon as he plugged his printer into it, according to a federal lawsuit filed yesterday in Maryland. Casey, who lived in Cockeysville, Md., but now lives in Florida with his wife, said in the lawsuit that as soon as he plugged it in, he suffered "a severe electric shock that ran through his body, with tingling in his right hand up to his shoulder, across his tongue and down his left arm. " Casey had presented his computer for repair in early September 2007 to the Geek Squad at the Best Buy in the 1700 block of York Road in Timonium, the lawsuit states.

A Howard County high school teacher who successfully sued the school system for race discrimination several years ago filed a third lawsuit against the system Sept. 24 in a bid to address matters not covered in a pending lawsuit that alleges retaliation. "The [Sept. 24] lawsuit was filed to reserve my right to be able to file suits at a later date," said Michelle Maupin, who in July 2007 was awarded more than $200,000 in compensatory and punitive damages by a jury in a racial discrimination suit she filed while teaching at Centennial High School in Ellicott City.

The student, Alexander Kinyua, 22, was later accused of murder and cannibalism in the death of a family friend. Judge Videtta A. Brown found that there was potential for "foreseeability" on the part of the school that "something bad was going to happen," said Steven D. Silverman, Caesar's attorney.
