Warrant issued for agent Leigh Steinberg over debt
Court issues bench warrant for famed sports agent Leigh Steinberg over debt to landlord
By The Associated Press

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) ' A California court has issued a bench warrant for veteran sports agent Leigh Steinberg in a case involving a $1.4 million judgment owed to a landlord.

Orange County Superior Court spokeswoman Carole Levitzky said Thursday the warrant was issued after Steinberg failed to attend court last week.

Court papers show Steinberg was ordered to pay $1.4 million last year to The Irvine Company for office space he leased in Newport Beach.

In court papers, the company says Steinberg stopped paying under his lease terms in 2009.

Steinberg says he is not hiding and is responsible for his debts.

Irvine Company officials declined comment.

Steinberg has represented NFL stars including Troy Aikman and Ben Roethlisberger and was the inspiration for Tom Cruise's character in the movie "Jerry Maguire."
