Citibank wins judgment against Ed McMahon
TV personality says injury prevents him from workingCitibank has won an $180,000 judgment against Ed McMahon.
A judge in Santa Monica ruled Thursday that McMahon owes the bank for debt incurred over four years.
Citibank sued the former "Tonight Show" sidekick in June. McMahon never responded, and Judge John H. Reid finally ended the case.
McMahon has faced money woes for the past year, when foreclosure proceedings began on his hilltop mansion. A group of investors recently bought the loan and say they will allow McMahon to live there and make payments.
McMahon has said he was unable to work after breaking his neck in a fall in March 2007. A lawsuit he filed claiming a Los Angeles hospital failed to diagnose and fix his neck is working its way through the court system.
