Just days after former Miami Dolphins linebacker Jason Taylor was sued by his former investment broker, a second lawsuit has been filed against him. This time, Housewall LLC has alleged that the future Hall of Famer failed to pay for an $11,000 garage installation they completed in April 2009.
According to GossipExtra.com, Taylor "wasn't required to put down a deposit and has yet to settle the entire bill."
However, Taylor has responded to the announcement of the second lawsuit via Twitter, tweeting to the Palm Beach Posts' Ben Volin.
@BenVolinPBP @gossipextra LOL. It's all so outlandish its laughable!!!#Fiction— Jason Taylor (@JasonTaylor) July 19, 2012
Taylor continued to tweet about the lawsuit, pointing out that Eric Kim, the investment broker who filed the first lawsuit against Taylor last week, and is also being sued by Taylor in a suit filed last August, is actually an owner of Housewall.
@BenVolinPBPit's interesting that there is no mention that Eric Kim is an owner at housewall. ??There was no bill! Lol— Jason Taylor (@JasonTaylor) July 19, 2012
@BenVolinPBP he threatened me that if I didn't drop my suit against him that he would call #TMZ and LIE to trash. Lol#scaretactics— Jason Taylor (@JasonTaylor) July 19, 2012
The first lawsuit filed this week alleges that Taylor failed to adhere to Kim's advise to cash out on investments when they were at their peak. Kim, in the lawsuit, says that Taylor ended up losing the money he invested, and never paid Kim a fee for his services. He, therefore, is suing Taylor for $15,000 for the services, and $1 million for "damages."
Taylor alleges in the initial lawsuit that Kim took $500,000 from Taylor for investments, but then wrote checks to himself from the money, taking over $250,000 from Taylor's "investment."
