(AP) GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Former Detroit Red Wing Kevin Miller denies he owes a $1.6 million judgment to an insurance company for a hit during a 2000 Swiss league game that ended a player’s career.
Miller’s hit on Andrew McKim caused the Canadian to suffer a severe concussion and neck injuries.
The Grand Rapids Press reports Wednesday ( http://bit.ly/10evyVF) that the Swiss insurance company wants a U.S. District Court judge to recognize a Switzerland court’s $1 million judgment against Miller. The figure has increased to $1.6 million with interest and costs.
Kevin Miller lives in Williamston and on Monday took part in an exhibition game with the Harlem Globetrotters in Portage.
His lawyer, Douglas Donnell, says the Swiss award raises "substantial doubt about the integrity of the rendering court with respect to the judgment."
