Lawyer: Suit over A-Rod's legal fees settled

NEW YORK (AP) A lawyer says his firm has settled its lawsuit accusing New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez of failing to pay legal bills stemming from the Biogenesis scandal.

Peter Siachos of Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani said Thursday the suit was settled ''amicably'' this month. He declined to disclose the terms.

Rodriguez was suspended for the 2014 season after then-Commissioner Bud Selig concluded he violated the sport's drug agreement and labor contract. Gordon Rees had claimed it helped get Rodriguez's original 211-game suspension reduced to 162 games in arbitration.

The suit had accused Rodriguez of failing to pay more than $380,000 in legal fees.
