Ichiro Suzuki -- Sued for Balking Construction Bill
4/28/2009 10:00 PM PT
Seattle Mariners all-star Ichiro Suzuki is being sued by a construction company that claims he struck out swinging when it came time to pay his bill.
According to a lawsuit filed today in Los Angeles Superior Court, Ichiro hired American Technologies to perform construction and remediation services at his home in Los Angeles. American claims they lived up to their end of the deal, but Ichiro never forked over the $131,774.25 he was billed.
The company is suing for what they're owed, plus attorneys' fees, costs, and interests.
A call to the Mariners was not immediately returned.
