Trustee R. TODD NEILSON is suing the wife of former L.A. Kings Owner BRUCE MCNALL to recover an "alleged $1 million held in a Swiss Bank account and a substantial inventory of jewelry." Neilson contends that JANE CODY MCNALL has property believed to be transferred from her husband Bruce, which she is "obligated to turn over to the trustees." Bruce McNall was stripped of his ownership with the team after a federal investigation of bank fraud (Lisa Dillman, L.A. TIMES, 3/28)....DERRICK LEWIS, who last week told the WALL STREET JOURNAL that he witnessed REGGIE LEWIS, his friend and former college teammate, doing cocaine (a story he later recanted), spent three days in a Baltimore hotel paid for by the JOURNAL, according to this morning's BALTIMORE SUN. Lewis told the paper he had been threatened and "feared retaliation" from his allegations. Roger May, spokesperson for the newspaper, said "this is not a standard practice of this paper, but the security of Mr. Lewis was in question" (Mike Preston, Baltimore SUN, 3/28).
