SC Federal Judge Sanctions Boxer Mayweather
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- A federal judge has ordered prizefighter Floyd Mayweather Jr. to perform 40 hours of community service for dodging a deposition in a dispute with a South Carolina man.

In a ruling released Monday, Judge Joseph Anderson instructed Mayweather to log his community service at the Las Vegas Habitat for Humanity Project by Jan. 31.

Anderson wrote that videotape shows Mayweather at a pair of Atlanta nightclubs during a time in September when he told the court he couldn't be deposed because he was resting after a boxing match.

Mayweather is being sued by Anthony Dash, who says a beat for a song he created in 2005 was illegally used at a pair of appearances the boxer made at World Wrestling Entertainment events.

Mayweather couldn't immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.
