A federal judge has ordered Rod Stewart to pay a Las Vegas casino more than $3 million for a canceled show in December 2000.

U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks ordered the British rocker's lawyers to pay an additional $153,483 in contempt-of-court sanctions and legal costs for failing to turn over information to lawyers for Harrah's Entertainment before trial last year.

Stewart's lawyer, Louis "Skip" Miller in Los Angeles, declined comment Monday on the sanctions. Miller said Stewart intends to appeal the verdict and jury award.

Hicks' judicial order, dated Friday, put Stewart on the hook for $3.06 million, including the $2 million advance he was paid by the Rio hotel-casino and more than $1 million in interest, penalties and attorney fees.
