Tampa physician Robert Nucci is suing his attorneys after losing $2 million during his first year of owning a part of the Tampa Bay Storm Arena Football team, the Tampa Bay Business Journal reports.

Nucci became a part owner of the team in 2007 and claims that the Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC law firm was not upfront about the Arena Football League’s finances at the time, the Business Journal reports.

Nucci, who no longer owns a part of the team, is asking for $15 million in damages, according to the Business Journal.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
