Pacquiao Cracks Mayweather For $113K in Legal Fees

In the ongoing legal saga between superstar fighters Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr., Nevada federal judge Larry R. Hicks ruled on Monday that Mayweather has to pay Pacquiao "$113,518.50 dollars in legal fees" for skipping several court ordered deposition dates in 2011 - in connection to a pending defamation action filed in 2009 by Pacquiao's legal team.

The suit alleges Mayweather and his reps maliciously accused Pacquiao of using performance enhancing drugs.

Court House News quotes the language used in the winning motion by David Marroso of O'Melveny & Myers, a top Los Angeles firm that often represents the interests of Pacquiao and Top Rank.

"Mayweather decided that he, not the court, would determine if and when his deposition would take place," according to the motion. "Busy living the 'luxurious lifestyle non-stop,' 'pour[ing] champagne for [his] friends,' and keeping the company of 'attractive women,' Mayweather refused to be deposed. He disobeyed properly served deposition notices, filed specious 'emergency' motions, openly defied this court's order directing him to appear, and serially misrepresented his whereabouts to Pacquiao and this court. Exposing Mayweather's untruths was a massive - and expensive - undertaking."

In the court order, which can be found here, Justice Hicks wrote the following

"The court notes that the award of attorney's fees in this matter is a sanction against Mayweather's obviously intentional decision not to appear for his court ordered deposition. This was a direct discovery violation after the court had entered a very clear order that the deposition go forward."
