STIFFIN' SAMMY SETTLES

September 21, 2005

sscork.jpgSammy Sosa was never really a detail guy. He hit home runs. Other details - knowing which bat was corked, hitting the cutoff man, running until you know the ball has left the stadium, the number of outs at any given time - weren't Sammy's strength.

So it's easy to see how a mere $22,000 legal bill could elude Sammy. A trifle. Put it in perspective: a $22,000 legal bill to Sammy's $16 million salary is like a $68.75 premium cable bill to a fan earning $50,000.

But Sammy's former attorneys didn't seem to appreciate that perspective. They sued Sammy earlier this month for $22,000 in unpaid fees for tax controversy services. The parties settled last week; the TaxProf has what details are available.
