Hartford (AP) — A New York City judge has dismissed an employee discrimination lawsuit against University of Connecticut women's basketball coach Geno Auriemma and USA Basketball.

Kelly Hardwick filed the lawsuit in New York last June, alleging she was being kept off the security detail at the London Olympics after spurning sexual advances from Auriemma on a trip to Russia in 2009. Auriemma, who coached the USA women's basketball team to a gold medal in London last year, denied the allegations.

The Connecticut Post reports  that Supreme Court Justice Cynthia S. Kern dismissed the case on April 11. She ruled that her court had no jurisdiction because Auriemma doesn't live or work in New York.

Hardwick's lawyer appealed Kern's decision Tuesday to the New York Supreme Court's Appellate Division.
