Jonathan Martin's mother revealed as a lawyer with expertise in workplace harassment..

Jonathan Martin could sue the Miami Dolphins for big money under a variety of workplace laws - and could turn to his own legal eagle mother for advice.

The employment legislation makes employers liable for bullying, harassment and discrimination - even if the team's hierarchy didn't know about it, according to several legal experts.
----
Interestingly, Martin's mother, Jane Howard-Martin, spent almost 20 years practicing employment law and wrote numerous articles in legal journals on such issues as workplace discrimination and harassment. It's not known whether she has any role in her son's decisions. Howard-Martin is now assistant general counsel for Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc. in Los Angeles.

1. While I don't condone any of what happened,

this is oddly starting to look like a guy who didn't really want to play in the NFL anymore and was looking for a way out without having to return any signing bonus money.

2. Because Martin played at Stanford under Harbaugh..

it's hard for me not to support him, but I'm wondering about a lot of this also. For one thing, it appears to be a distinct possibility he was being coached by someone other than a member of the Dolphins staff.

3. Huh?

If employment laws were broken, what difference does it make who his mother is, what she does, or who she worked for?

The laws were broken or they weren't.

Besides, since day 2 of this saga, we all knew both of Martin's parents were Harvard Law grads. Even if she had been in environmental law, she would still know people her son could consult.

4. All this crap is getting seriously close to slut-shaming...blaming the victim...

 

Yeah, like somehow Incognito is now a knight in shining armor and everyone on the Dolphins are bunch of swell guys...what bullshit.

5. Fucking lawyers

 

This clearly means Incognito is a great guy.

for the impaired.

Perhaps he has an even better understanding that what happened is harassment since he has a family member that is an expert.

6. This!

And Joey--it already has reached the levels of "slut shaming" I saw someone on FB express his hope that Martin never plays football again because you know, this is all his fault for speaking up. He should just sit down and shut up like a good little victim apparantly

7. There's nothing "interesting" here. Incognito is a douchebag.

8. Yes, I saw that..

but I haven't made any comment supporting Incognito, have I? I'm just wondering about Martin's motivations. If you don't like it, that's too bad.
