HOWELL, Mich. (AP) — Ex-Detroit Tigers pitcher Denny McLain and his attorney have been ordered to pay slightly more than $7,000 in attorney fees in a breach-of-contract case.

Judge Theresa Brennan on Thursday said lawyer Barry Powers "was trying to intimidate and harass" Joe Dobson, who sued McLain for $1,910.

Powers tells the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell (http://bit.ly/1MI7DW8 ) that Brennan holds a grudge against him for asking her to recuse herself from the case.

A jury in July ruled against McLain. Dobson initially sued in a Livingston County court, saying McLain owed him for unpaid wages for a sales job. McLain countersued seeking more than $25,000.

McLain won the 1968 American League Most Valuable Player and Cy Young awards after winning 31 games and leading Detroit to the World Series.
