Court: Tim Donaghy owed $1.7 million from book publisher

By David Payne Purdum / dpurdum@sportsdirectinc.com

A rough week for ex-NBA ref Tim Donaghy ended on a high note Friday, a $1.7 million high note.

A Florida civil court awarded Donaghy $1,718, 375 in its final judgment against his former book publisher Shawna Vercher and her defunct company VTi Group Inc.

The ruling came four days after a New York court ruled that Donaghy must terminate his employment with a sports betting website and radio show due to the company frontman Danny T. Biancullo’s past felony convictions.

Donaghy has filed paperwork asking the court to terminate his probation and eliminate any employment restrictions. His probation is currently scheduled to end in November.

Meanwhile, Vercher, a political radio talk show host in Tampa, has 30 days to file an appeal and 45 days to provide all financial information.
