Lincecum Awarded $100K In Landlord-Tenant Dispute
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum and his former San Francisco landlord have agreed to a $100,000 judgment in Lincecum's favor, ending a long legal dispute that began with allegations that he left a townhouse he rented during the 2010 season a wreck.
The Beverly Hills Sports Council, which represents Lincecum, released a statement Thursday announcing the settlement.
Mindy Freile filed a lawsuit in October 2011 seeking $350,000 in damages against Lincecum, claiming the two-time NL Cy Young Award winner stole and destroyed items in the townhouse he rented in San Francisco's Mission District. Lincecum countersued, saying the allegations were false and Freile violated a California law that required her to account for the whereabouts of his security deposit.
A message left Friday at the office of Freile's attorney, Jonathan Bornstein, was not immediately returned.
