BALTIMORE (AP) — Former Baltimore Ravens star Ray Lewis is suing his former attorney over a failed development project he says cost him $1.5 million.

Lewis last week sued Baltimore attorney Marc Seldin Rosen, who Lewis says tricked him into investing in the failed MVP Lanes entertainment complex after he agreed only to lend his "name and likeness" to the venture.

The suit accuses Rosen of convincing Lewis to sign a $1.5 million line of credit for the project, which was announced in 2009. The suit says the loan has never been paid, and that Lewis is now responsible for it.

The suit accuses Rosen of malpractice, fraud and breach of contract.

Rosen's office directed calls for comment to attorney Jeffrey Kotz, who represented the project. Kotz says the allegations are false.
