After filing suit against a business partner back in 2007 over a failed airplane deal, Scottie Pippen was awarded a large chunk of cash (his second legal victory in the matter.) The South Florida Business Journal reports: “Former NBA basketball star Scottie Pippen has won a $2.37 million judgment against a Miami businessman, Craig Frost, and a Miami company, CF Air. Pippen, who has a home in Fort Lauderdale, and his wife, Larsa Pippen, filed suit against Frost in 2007 regarding Pippen’s disastrous ownership of his own airplane through a company called Air Pip … In 2010, widespread media covered a Cook County jury verdict for Pippen related to the deal: He won $2 million in a malpractice case against Chicago law firm Pedersen & Houpt. Pippen alleged the firm failed to closely monitor his plane purchase. Pippen originally sought $8 million in that case. The final judgment against Frost was recently registered in Miami-Dade Circuit Court. It said Frost had agreed to a confidential settlement in September 2010, but had failed to pay Pippen under the terms of that settlement.”
