--(Business Wire)--

Big Thunder Public Relations:




WHEN:

 

11 a.m. CDT (News - Alert), Tuesday, July 15

 

WHERE:

Halunen & Associates, IDS Building, 80 South Eight Street, Suite 1650, Minneapolis

 

WHO:

Chris Kluwe, former Minnesota Vikings punter, and Clayton Halunen, attorney, Halunen & Associates, www.halunenlaw.com
 

WHAT:

News conference, at which time Kluwe and his attorney will voice their concerns about the Minnesota Vikings' reneging on a promise to release a copy of their investigation into allegations of homophobic behavior by a coach. On Monday, July 14, the Vikings informed Kluwe's attorney that they would not provide a copy of the report to either Kluwe or the public.
 

WHY:

In January 2014, the Vikings hired two highly respected Minnesota legal figures to conduct an independent investigation into Kluwe's allegations that a coach - and the team itself - used homophobic slurs and taunts in an effort to quash his public support for gay marriage rights. Kluwe alleged in a January Deadspin article that he was fired by the Vikings for being an outspoken gay rights advocate - and that a coach, Mike Priefer, had openly and privately made homophobic comments and slurs intended to intimidate Kluwe. The Vikings promised to make a full report of the investigation available to Kluwe and his attorney. Now, more than six months later, the investigators have handed over their report to the Vikings - and the Vikings refuse to give Kluwe a copy of the report.
