Jurors order Canseco brothers to pay $300K in punitive damages


April 26, 2005
CBS SportsLine.com wire reports



MIAMI -- Jose Canseco and twin brother Ozzie were ordered by a jury Tuesday to pay nearly $300,000 in punitive damages to two men who were beaten by the former major leaguers at a Miami Beach nightclub four years ago.

Jose Canseco, the 1988 American League most valuable player, must pay $240,000 and his brother $50,000. The same jury awarded the victims more than $700,000 in compensatory damages a day earlier.

The decision on punitive damages came after disputes about Jose Canseco's net worth in the lawsuit by Christian Presley and Alan Cheeks. Both sued for injuries from the Halloween fight in 2001 at the Opium Garden nightclub.

Lawrence Epstein, an accountant hired by the two men, testified that Jose Canseco has a net worth of about $1.9 million and Ozzie has virtually no net worth. Canseco's liabilities total about $3.7 million, mostly mortgages and child support payments, Epstein said.

Taking the stand Tuesday, Jose Canseco again denied hitting either man and estimated his net worth at closer to $500,000.

Jose Canseco hit 462 home runs during a 17-year career with Oakland, the Chicago White Sox, Texas, Boston, Toronto, Tampa Bay and the New York Yankees. Ozzie Canseco had a long minor league career and played briefly in the majors.

Jose Canseco recently testified before Congress about steroid use in major league baseball, which he claimed in his book Juiced is rampant. Steroid use did not come up in the lawsuit.

I figured Jose's twin brother would be named Hose-B.
