Former Chicago Bears quarterback Kyle Orton is suing a law firm, claiming the firm misled him into making investments that cost him and other NFL players millions of dollars.
And it wasn't because of a bear market, either. Kyle Orton's suit alleges lawyers at the Chicago firm Chuhak & Tecson fumbled by creating tax shelters that failed to meet legal requirements, the Chicago Tribune reports.
The firm assured the new Kansas City Chiefs signal caller that he'd get big returns, but never told Orton its tax shelters weren't legit, Kyle Orton's suit asserts. As a result, Orton suffered millions in losses, according to the Tribune.
Other NFL players also lost money in the deal, Orton's attorney told the Associated Press.
