Oklahoma State University football coach Mike Gundy’s wife wants her name off the lawsuit a carpenter filed claiming Gundy fired him for wearing an Oklahoma shirt.
The Gundys’ attorney, William Baker, filed a motion Thursday to dismiss Kristen Gundy from the civil case Brent Lee Loveland of Choctaw filed against the couple Aug. 11 claiming breach of contract.
An Oct. 20 hearing is set at 1:30 p.m. before Associate District Judge Stephen Kistler in Payne County District Court.
Loveland’s lawsuit says he wore a gray Nike shirt with Oklahoma baseball in red across the front when he went to the Gundys’ Stillwater house to do carpentry work last spring.
Loveland’s lawsuit contends Mike Gundy confronted him, saying, “How dare you come into my house and offend my wife.” Loveland’s lawsuit says he asked Gundy what he was talking about and, the lawsuit alleges, Gundy replied, “that f___ing shirt you have on.”
Loveland contends Gundy cursed at him and told him to pack his belongings and leave. Loveland claims he lost around $40,000 in wages and also had turned down other jobs in order to work on the Gundy job.
In Baker’s motion filed Wednesday, the Gundys’ attorney contends Kristen Gundy should be dismissed from the lawsuit because she was not involved in any discussions or negotiations with Loveland, nor does the lawsuit prove Loveland had any conversations with Kristen Gundy.
