Larry Hazzard, commissioner of the New Jersey Board of Athletic Control, has filed a lawsuit claiming his bosses discriminated against him because he is black. New Jersey Attorney General Peter Harvey, one of the men Hazzard says discriminated against him is also black. Hazzard also sued Dennis Crowley, who worked under Harvey and Gerard Gormley, who resigned from the commission after being charged with ethical violations. Hazzard alleges he was unfairly blamed for the lack of major bouts in the state. Gormley has considerably less experience in the sport than Hazzard, a lifelong boxing man, but Gormley's brother is an influential politician who helped him get appointed to a position above Hazzard. In the lawsuit, Hazzard also complained about the new office spaces the commission was given in 2003, saying it was a hostile work environment that also lacked parking spaces.
