Paul Voinovich, brother of senator, dies

The Associated Press

        CLEVELAND — Paul Voinovich, the brother of Sen. George Voinovich whose contracting companies were ordered liquidated by a federal bankruptcy judge, died Monday.

        Mr. Voinovich, 59, of Bainbridge Township, died at 6:30 p.m. at the Cleveland Clinic after suffering a stroke the previous night at his home, a hospital spokesman said.

        George Voinovich, R-Ohio, was returning from Berlin on Monday night following a meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and was unavailable for comment.

        Paul Voinovich's V Companies and VS Architects companies were ordered to be sold in March to pay creditors. The senator is not affiliated with the companies.

        The companies filed for protection from creditors two years ago after being ordered to pay $13.3 million to Jefferson County after a jail the company designed and helped build was completed almost 19 months late and cost $10 million more than expected.

        Mr. Voinovich's Cleveland-based V Group blamed county commissioners for most of the delays and increased costs.
