Judgment Against Ex-Red Wing Kevin Miller Upheld

GRAND RAPIDS (AP) – A federal judge in western Michigan has upheld a $1.6 million judgment against former Detroit Red Wing Kevin Miller for a hit during a 2000 Swiss league game that ended a player’s career.

U.S. District Judge Gordon Quist ruled in favor of a Swiss insurance company. The insurer sought a U.S. judge to recognize a Switzerland court’s $1.1 million judgment, which increased to $1.6 million with interest and costs.

The Grand Rapids judge said in Thursday’s ruling the court was following the Uniform Foreign-Country Judgments Recognition Act.

Miller’s hit on Andrew McKim caused the Canadian to suffer a severe concussion and neck injuries.

Miller has denied he owes the money. He’s also denied his actions seriously injured McKim.

The Associated Press left a message Saturday for Miller’s attorney, Douglas Donnell.
