A Los Angeles judge has dropped the two remaining actions against Derek Fisher in Billy Hunter's lawsuit, leaving the disgraced former union chief to fight it out with the National Basketball Players Association over his termination. With two more actions against Fisher dropped from the lawsuit on Tuesday, Hunter has lost on all of his claims against Fisher and the former union president's business manager, Jamie Wior. All actions against Wior, and 12 of 14 against Fisher, were dropped last week. The remaining actions against Fisher that were dropped Tuesday involved Hunter's allegations of breach of contract and intentional interference with contractual relations, said Fisher's attorney, Andrew Kassof. Hunter had alleged that Fisher and Wior conspired during the 2011 lockout to have him ousted as the NBPA's executive director so they could take control of the union. Fisher is no longer president, having been replaced by the Clippers' Chris Paul this past August. Wior no longer works for Fisher, but has been retained by the NBPA to assist in the planning and execution of its winter meeting at All-Star weekend in New Orleans next month. Hunter was unanimously terminated in February 2013 after Fisher's allegations of improprieties led to an internal investigation revealing that Hunter improperly managed conflicts of interest and put his own self interests ahead of the union's.
