Miami Dolphins legend Jason Taylor stiffed a garage organizer who installed $11,619 worth of equipment to keep the sprawling garage in his Weston house neat and clean, according to a lawsuit filed in Broward County last week.
According to the invoice included in a lawsuit from Housewall LLC, a Sunrise company, the work was done in April 2009 at Taylor’s 10,000-square-foot Paddock Road mansion.
Taylor wasn’t required to put down a deposit and has yet to settle the entire bill. His wife Katina is also named.
“I don’t know why he isn’t paying,” said Weston lawyer Scott Behren, who reps Housewall. “We’ll find out when he answers the suit.”
The filing comes in the wake of another court action filed by a financial advisor against the 37-year-old Taylor, a veteran of 15 seasons in the league that also saw him play with the New York Jets and Washington Redskins.
Eric Kim, the advisor, wants Taylor to pay him $1 million for damaging his reputation. Taylor accused Kim of stiffing him and talking him into making bad investments.
Kim claims he started helping Taylor out with his investment after the ball player failed with several ventures, including cash sunk into the JuiceBlendz health juices and an ill-fated Weston cigar bar.
