Man Wants Interest on His $1 Million Reward From Ryan Leslie

It seems a million dollars just isn’t enough for the man who recently won a case to secure the reward put up by Ryan Leslie. According to reports, Armin Augstein has filed a demand for interest on top of the million, claiming he spent over two years fighting the music entertainer for the bounty.

Last month, a New York court ordered Ryan Leslie to pay Augstein $1 million for returning his laptop after allegedly finding it in Germany in 2010.

Now Augstein has filed papers in Manhattan Federal Court, demanding an additional $180,000 in interest.

Leslie expressed his outrage over the court’s decision during a recent gig by setting fire to a newspaper which had published coverage of the case.
