In a Miami Herald article that is far too long and complicated to accurately describe in this space, “a pair of Miami entrepreneurs” have sued Orlando Hernandez and his manager for $900,000 as part of a disagreement over “the idea for a water-saving device.”
According to the suit, Hernandez and manager Juan Carlos Collar loaned them money to start the company “at illegal interest rates” before trying to steal the idea after the inventors “got all star-struck with who was investing in their company.”
Also of note is that Collar reportedly “sunk $250,000 into an infomercial featuring Hernandez … which yielded just $40,000 in revenue.” I’d say more, but a) Craig is supposed to be the lawyer here, and b) the whole article is definitely worth reading.
Hernandez has yet to pitch after the 44-year-old signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals a few weeks ago. And last month his half-brother Gerardo Regalado murdered four people and wounded three others before shooting and killing himself.
