RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Imprisoned NFL star Michael Vick is suing a former financial adviser for at least $2 million.
Vick claims Mary Wong of Omaha, Neb., misrepresented herself to gain control of his finances, which she then misused. He's accusing Wong of fraud, breach of contract, negligence and other offenses.
Wong's lawyer, James Mitchell, did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.
The lawsuit also names a company Wong co-owns with three NFL players: Demorrio Williams, and twins Josh and Daniel Bullocks. The suit was filed in U.S. District Court in Norfolk late last week.
Vick is serving 23 months in federal prison for bankrolling a dogfighting conspiracy.
