(AP) Olympic gold medalist Oksana Baiul (by-YOOL') is suing a talent agency claiming it mismanaged money she earned after her gold medal-winning figure skating performance in 1994.


The lawsuit filed in Los Angeles claims she signed contracts with the William Morris Agency shortly after her victory but only recently discovered that hundreds of thousands of dollars had gone uncollected or were improperly spent.


The lawsuit claims the Ukrainian-born skater signed the agreements without being able to read, write or understand English. She claims the agency failed to properly explain agreements to her and misrepresented the amounts she is owed.


The agency, now known as William Morris Endeavor, declined comment.


Baiul now lives in Pennsylvania and is seeking more than $1 million, although the exact amount owed would be determined by jurors.
