The Daily, Um, Grind

Posted By on Tue, Oct 3, 2006 at 4:00 AM

Robin Grindstaff Costa, president of the Maddox Foundation, formerly of Nashville and now headquartered in Hernando, Mississippi, is at the center of litigation seeking to oust her as head of that philanthropic organization and to move it back to the Nashville area. Costa achieved some notoriety two weeks ago when a deposition in the case alleged a sexual relationship between herself and former Mississippi governor Ronnie Musgrove.

As a weekend article in The Nashville Post makes clear, that ain’t all. In one of her own depositions, Grindstaff … er, Costa, acknowledges having had sexual relations with three employees of the Memphis RiverKings hockey team during the period of its ownership by the foundation. One of them, former assistant general manager Kevin Brooks, was demoted and fired (when the relationship cooled, he says) and later sued his former boss for sexual harassment.

Said Brooks in a deposition: “I truly, truly don’t care what’s happening with the organization, and I don’t want to be part of – of – of the Peyton Place that is happening.”

Well, at least there’s one disinterested party. Get all the dish here.
