DETROIT (AP) -A lawyer for ex-Detroit Red Wings defenseman Vladimir Konstantinov and a former team masseur has asked a federal jury to award them nearly $300 million for a 1997 limo crash in suburban Detroit that left them with disabling brain injuries.
Richard Goodman asked in his closing argument on Friday for $75 million to $100 million each for pain and suffering for Konstantinov and Sergei Mnatsakanov.
Goodman also asked for lost wages of $88.8 million for Konstantinov and $2.29 million for Mnatsakanov.
Konstantinov and Mnatsakanov sued a Findlay, Ohio, Ford dealership that sold the limo.
Findlay Ford Lincoln Mercury says it shouldn't be held responsible because it didn't make the vehicle.
The jury was to begin deliberating late Friday or Tuesday.
