A lawsuit was filed against the New York Giants by their former video director in the fallout following an alleged physical altercation involving two other employees at the team’s facility.
Dave Maltese was fired in March for what the suit describes as “retaliatory purposes” in violation of CEPA, New Jersey’s whistleblower statute. He claims this was a result of the complaint and report he filed following an alleged physical assault and attack he witnessed by current Giants director of football data and innovation Ty Siam against assistant video director Steven Venditti.
Siam is known to be the head of the Giants’ analytics department and has on multiple occasions over the past 16 months been praised publicly by general manager Dave Gettleman for his work.
But Maltese also claimed in the suit filed to the Superior Court of New Jersey, Bergen County, that Siam had engaged in threatening behavior toward him and there was a pervasive and continuous pattern and culture of violence in the workplace by Giants management.
