According to a report by Irie FM, former Reggae Boy and Harbour View midfielder Jermaine Hue is suing the Jamaica Football Federation and former national team doctor Carlton ‘pee wee’ Fraser for over one million dollars.
This for a breach of contract and damages for battery and negligence.
Hue was slapped with a nine-month ban last September by FIFA after testing positive for a steroid while on national duty with the reggae boys in Honduras in a world cup qualifier last June.
He became eligible to return to competition on May 6 of this year.
The suit was reportedly filed in the Supreme Court on Tuesday by Ronsford graham under the instruction of the law firm Patterson/Mair/Hamilton.
It alleges that hue was misled by Fraser into taking the substance dexamethasone which was on the WADA list of banned substances.
According to hue he suffered a loss of income and was unable to take up a contract in El Salvador that would have seen him earn monthly wages of 2500 dollars U.S.
The 35 year old who in the law suit said he was forced to borrow 10-thousand US dollars from his father in law during the suspension, would after completing the stint in El Salvador have been eligible to represent harbour view where he earned 100 thousand dollars monthly.
Noted attorney at law Ambassador Stuart Stephenson looks at the possible scenario in the case.
