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

Attorney David Cornwell's law firm filed papers Monday in Manhattan federal court saying the New York Yankees star owes more than $380,000 related to their work fighting 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 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 admitted in 2009 that he used banned substances from 2001-03 while with Texas, before baseball had penalties in place for PEDs. But he has denied using them since.
