A federal judge in Maryland has ruled that former Duke basketball stars Christian Laettner and Brian Davis must pay NFL linebacker Shawn Merriman $3.765 million and give him ownership stakes in the duo's projects in Durham, Baltimore and Atlanta.
Merriman, who currently plays for the Buffalo Bills, has accused Laettner and Davis of failing to abide by terms of a $3 million loan and a settlement reached in federal court in 2009.
The latest judgment, filed Dec. 13 in the U.S. District Court in Maryland, gives Merriman a 10 percent membership interest in the West Village Condos Partnership in Durham, the West Village project in Atlanta, and a project in Baltimore.
Merriman's capital stake in the Durham and Atlanta projects will be $800,000 each. In Baltimore, it will be $1.4 million.
