CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Jeremy Mayfield's former attorneys have filed a civil suit against the suspended NASCAR driver seeking nearly $400,000 in unpaid fees.
The firm James, McElroy and Diehl filed the complaint Wednesday in North Carolina Superior Court. They claim Mayfield and Mayfield Motorsports owes the firm $371,973.66, plus attorney fees, late charges and interest since Oct. 22.
The firm represented Mayfield following his May 9 suspension for failing a random drug test. He hired high-profile attorney Mark Geragos in early October.
Bill Diehl said earlier this month that he was owed a substantial amount of money for representing Mayfield, but Mayfield said last week he's paid Diehl.
