Tom Gores Rumors

Billionaire Tom Gores said he is committed to reforming business practices in the corrections services industry, but that it will take time and patience. Calls for the owner of the Detroit Pistons to cut ties with Securus Technologies Inc., a controversial prison phone company, erupted anew last week in a letter from criminal justice advocates to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and in a full-page ad published in The New York Times. Critics are calling on the league to force Gores to sell the Pistons and step down from the NBA board because of his ties to Securus.
