Alex Rodriguez Sued by His Own Lawyer for Alleged Unpaid Legal Fees

Alex Rodriguez faces a new challenge: He's being sued by his own lawyer.

Attorney David Cornwell's law firm filed papers Monday in Manhattan federal court saying the baseball star owes more than $380,000 related to their work against his steroid suspension.

As first reported by the New York Daily News, the firm also is seeking pre-judgment interest and attorney fees that could increase the amount to half a million dollars.

Rodriguez was suspended for the 2014 season as a result of a drug investigation by Major League Baseball. He has said he plans to rejoin the Yankees in 2015.

Rodriguez admitted in 2009 that he used banned substances from 2001-03 while with the Texas Rangers, before baseball had penalties in place for performance-enhancing drugs. But he has denied using them since.
