Shawne Merriman Awarded 3.8 Million in Lawsuit Against Christian Laettner
Shawne Merriman has been winning lately.
First he swindled the Bills out of a new contract that could be worth up to 16 million over 2 years (at worst he will collect five million for first year) and now he is about to collect almost four million dollars from Christian Laettner.
TMZ has the details:
Laettner and his former Duke basketball teammate Brian Davis borrowed the cash back in 2007 to fund a series of real estate ventures — but according to Merriman, they refused to pay him back.
But a federal judge ruled that Laettner and his partner must not only pay back the original $3 mil — they also have to fork over $800,000 in interest payments plus they must transfer 10% of the ownership in their real estate holdings to Merriman.
Now if Merriman could just find some undetectable steroids and stay away from Tila Tequila, he will be back to his old self in 2011.
