The Wall Street Journal: NFL takes over probe into allegations against Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson

The National Football League has taken over the investigation into Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson for workplace misconduct, the results of which could have sweeping implications for the league.

This came as Sports Illustrated reported Sunday that at least four former Panthers employees have received financial settlements stemming from Richardson’s conduct. Three of the instances were for sexual comments and conduct directed toward women, and the fourth was for using a racial slur at a black team scout.

The team said it cannot comment on the specific allegations “this matter is under an ongoing legal review.”

On Friday, the team announced it had hired a law firm to investigate alleged workplace misconduct by Richardson, the franchise’s owner since its inception in 1993. Then Sunday, the league said it was taking over the investigation.

An expanded version of this report appears at WSJ.com.
