CHICAGO, Oct. 10 (UPI) -- Former NBA star Scottie Pippen has received $1.5 million in a longstanding legal dispute with his former financial adviser.

Pippen's attorney told The Chicago Sun-Times Wednesday the former Chicago Bulls star sought more than $20 million from Robert Lunn, a financial guru who once had numerous wealthy, well-known clients.

The report noted other former clients also sued Lunn, claiming he looted their investments, loaned their money to friends and associates, and lied about it.

Pippen's investments included a Gulfstream jet. He claimed Lunn misappropriated money for the jet and let it fall into "complete disrepair."

Pippen also is after $20 million from two law firms with ties to Lunn -- Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP and Pedersen & Houpt -- as well as an accounting firm, Wineberg & Lewis.

Lunn, 57, declared bankruptcy in 2005, leaving only his insurance money for Pippen to claim.

The settlement awaits the approval of Illinois Circuit Court Judge Brigid Mary McGrath.
