By ESPN Staff WriterBALTIMORE (AP) The Latest on former NBA star Kobe Bryant (all times local):12:15 p.m.
Former NBA player Kobe Bryant is being sued by the state of Alabama for allegedly paying a state worker more than $100K more than the $100k bonus he was promised in a benefit payment.
The suit filed in a Birmingham courtroom says Bryant’s former attorney says Bryant was unaware that his $100 million payout was contingent on the state not approving his $1.2 million settlement, which was approved in January.
A judge will decide the suit’s validity on Monday.
Bryant, who retired after the 2015-16 season, was fired from the Los Angeles Lakers last year and has since appeared in a documentary about his career.
