Owner Mark Cuban has agreed to contribute $10 million to help further the cause of women in sports and raise awareness about domestic violence following a workplace investigation of the Dallas Mavericks.

The results of a seven-month-long investigation into sexual harassment and workplace misconduct within the Mavericks organization were released Wednesday. The investigation reviewed a period spanning more than 20 years.

FEMA Administrator Brock Long released a statement acknowledging "deeply disturbing" allegations of sexual misconduct by a former head of personnel at FEMA, without naming the individual.

Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins is expected in court Thursday morning for a hearing on alleged prosecutorial misconduct. He was subpoenaed to appear last month, but defied the order saying he was in his office, but too ill to appear. That was just the latest in a string of controversies for Watkins, who has been a lightning rod from the start.
