Pro Player Funding, which is seeking $1.7 million in payment from former NFL quarterback Vince Young, is seeking sanctions against Young and his lawyer, Trey Dolezal, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Per the report, Pro Player is accusing Young and his attorney of trying to delay the judgment and running up excessive fees in both Texas, where Young lives, and in New York state where he judgment was originally made against the former Longhorns star.
Young took out a loan during the 2011 NFL lockout and defaulted, as the payments were supposed to be taken out of his NFL paychecks. However, he missed a payment, putting him in default, after his release by the Philadelphia Eagles. Young subsequently signed with Buffalo, but failed to make the team in camp last year.
Young, the third overall pick by Tennessee in 2006 and Rose Bowl hero at the University of Texas, remains out of the NFL his season.
“It is clear that (Dolezal’s) sole motivation (in filing recent motions) was to attempt to delay judgment and/or trial in this litigation,” Pro Player's attorneys said.
Last month, constables in Houston began taking inventory of Young's personal property to determine what could be liquidated in order to pay the judgment.
