Ex-NHL star Fedorov sues MI lawyers

BY foxsports • October 15, 2009

Ex-Detroit Red Wings star Sergei Fedorov is suing his former Michigan attorneys, claiming they share responsibility for the loss of millions of dollars invested with another client. Fedorov (FEHD'-ah-rahv) says the Birmingham law firm Hyman Lippitt PC had a conflict by representing him and financial adviser Joseph Zada. Fedorov says he's out $60 million through Zada and a Wayne County judge recently ruled that the hockey player is entitled to the money. Fedorov filed a lawsuit Thursday in federal court in Detroit, alleging the Hyman Lippitt firm knew that Zada had been sued by others for financial mismanagement. A message seeking comment was left for Doug Hyman. Fedorov plays hockey in Russia. He was NHL MVP in 1994 and spent 13 seasons with the Red Wings.
