My first thought was maybe trying to imply he’s 19, she’s 40, no chance he’s attracted to her or sexually interested in her? Not sure really.
Entire statement is aggressive and odd. Sounds like a hack.
That's exactly what is being alluded to.
I think he's trying to establish that she's an experienced professional and he's a troubled, very young person. Her experience and training makes her ideally suited to help someone like Josh but instead she saw an opportunity to victimize him.
If the real goal was to contrast his youth and inexperience with her experience and credentials you reference the number of years she has been licensed/practicing or her credentials - not her age.
Dr. Cauthen is a sports psychologist. If Primo 1) actually has a history of trauma/abuse and 2) disclosed that to her or the Spurs she would not be the one the one treating him (at least primarily) for those issues. Mental health professionals, like doctors and lawyers, specialize.
I feel like I'm coming across as taking Josh's side, which I am not.
Well the fact that you keep referring him to as "Josh" and the positions you have articulated certainly leave that impression.
I have no idea what actions she took when she saw his junk (talking to Josh about it, talking to the org about it). That information should all come out. But if the facts do show that the defense is correct that Josh was never told that he was inadvertently exposing himself, I think the defense has a pretty good position
First, this case is never getting tried to a jury. So you can dispense with the idea that "all the information will come out."
Second, at least with regard to the organization we do have information about that. The complaint details meetings with the Spurs - names and dates - regarding her complaints about Primo's behavior and what actions the Spurs took (or did not take) in response.
Third, lets imagine the Spurs and Primo's lawyers are completely incompetent and decide this is a case you should take to trial. Do you really think her testimony will be that she never told Primo to put his penis away.
At the end of the day, the statement is not a litigation strategy. Its a PR strategy and a poor one. The initial statement Primo issued and the response to the lawsuit are completely at odds tonally and in their approach. If you are going to go with "he needs help and is sorry", you stick with that, you don't accuser/victim blame.
Also worth mentioning, the Complaint references two other reported incidents of Primo exposing himself. I have seen mention of that elsewhere (allegedly staff at a hotel) not sure it has been discussed here. At least one other incident must have come to the Spurs' attention. All of the behavior referenced in Cauthen's complaint is from last season. Her allegations are not what lead the Spurs to release him.
