Trinidad soccer federation to sue Warner for funds

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (AP) -- The Trinidad and Tobago football federation says it plans to sue former FIFA Vice President Jack Warner to recover millions of dollars in funds including those slated for Haiti as a post-earthquake donation.

Federation attorney Derek Ali told a judge Friday that he planned to file a lawsuit. High Court Judge Devindra Rampersad ordered Ali to send Warner a protocol letter advising him of the federation's intentions.

Warner told reporters that the federation had the right to file a lawsuit and said he would wait to see what happens.

Warner previously served as the federation's special adviser and resigned last year to avoid a bribery probe.
