SEATTLE —

More than a dozen former members of billionaire Paul Allen's security detail have sued or settled with the co-founder of Microsoft and investment company Vulcan, with some alleging his sister Jody Allen sexually harassed them.

The seattlepi.com reports (http://bit.ly/Y5PiDF) that Vulcan attorney Harry Schneider described the claims as "meritless" and accused the employees of attempting to wring money out of their former employer.

The website reports that at least five former members of the Allens' personal security team have sued the siblings and Vulcan. Court documents indicate that 10 other former members of the team have previously settled with Vulcan after closed hearings before a private mediator.

There have been a series of lawsuits filed in King County Superior Court, but details are vague due to court orders and confidentiality agreements.

Two of those lawsuits are scheduled to get a jury trial, where more details would be revealed.
