Ben Gordon fiscal advisers ordered to repay loan

A federal judge in Chicago has ordered Ben Gordon's former financial advisers to pay the Pistons guard more than $1.3 million in a dispute over a loan. However, the judge found there was no breach of the advisers' fiduciary duty to Gordon. Judge Charles Kocoras handed down the decision Wednesday in a lawsuit the former Chicago Bulls player filed against California-based Larry Harmon & Associates. Kocoras ordered Harmon to repay with interest and penalties a $1 million loan from Gordon in 2007 but threw out his claim the loan and a change in how he paid them — from flat fee to a percentage of earnings — represented a breach of fiduciary duty. Attorneys for both sides said they were happy with the decision. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
