I love it when soccer and the law collide in my world! The L.A. Galaxy recently and mutually parted ways with Midfielder Alexsander Katai after Katai’s wife Tea made racist statements on Twitter that Alexsander denounced. The legal issues are both clear and murky at the same time.
Spoiler alert, it is a very bad idea to terminate an employee for their spouse’s behavior.
