Former USA Cricket Association executive secretary Kenwyn Williams has launched legal action for damages against the board, seeking in excess of $1.5 million for what he claims is action which exposed him to "public contempt, ridicule, aversion and disgrace".
The papers, published by Williams himself, say the defendants - which include various USACA officials as well as the board's legal representatives, McGuire Woods - "individually, collectively, wrongly, maliciously and scandalously [acted] to injure Plaintiff's sterling reputation and good name".
Williams was suspended by the USACA board, and subsequently dismissed, for a series of posts on USACA branded sites on Facebook and Twitter operated by him which attracted widespread media comment and ridicule. He is also accused of leaking confidential information and of acting in a way McGuire Woods told him was "recklessly [putting] USACA, its board, staff and yourself in contempt of court".
Williams continues to challenge the legality of the board's decision.
