Ellen Pao, who’s suing venture capital giant Kleiner Perkins for alleged sex discrimination, has a husband who has reportedly been entangled in a dizzying number of lawsuits.Pao’s husband, hedge fund manager Alphonse Fletcher, has been enmeshed in litigation from a real-estate battle to a fight over his hedge fund, the New York Post reported Monday.

Here are some of the lawsuits the Post reported Fletcher has been involved with:

  • Fletcher is perhaps best known for suing his co-op board for racial discrimination after it wouldn’t let him buy a fifth unit to expand his apartment. He made $700,000, way less than he would have needed to pay he maintenance on all those units, the Post reported.
  • In 1991, he filed another racial discrimination action, that time against his employee Kidder Peabody, a securities firm.
  • Fletcher has also been the target of litigation. Two male property managers he hired reportedly sued him for making unwanted sexual advances toward them.
  • And earlier this year, he got hit with litigation over his business, the Post reported. The state of Louisiana claimed filed a petition seeking to get back $100 million in pension money it had put into Fletcher’s hedge fund.
