NEW YORK (AP) – Alex Rodriguez faces a new challenge: He’s being sued by his own lawyer.

Attorney David Cornwell’s law firm filed papers Monday in Manhattan federal court saying the baseball star owes more than $380,000 related to their workagainst his steroid suspension.

As first reported by The Daily News, the firm also is seeking pre-judgment interest and attorney fees that could increase the amount to half a million dollars.

Rodriguez was suspended for the entire 2014 season as a result of a drug investigation by Major League Baseball.

He has said he plans to rejoin the Yankees in 2015.

Rodriguez has admitted that he used performance-enhancing drugs from 2001-03 but has denied using them since. He sued MLB and Commissioner Bud Selig last year, claiming a “witch hunt” against him.
