What sharp eyes I have! Although I haven’t made a rule that Sidebar must follow lawsuits to their conclusions, quite accidentally I did pick up this one, about heiress Daphne Guinness and her bathtub flooding problem. Remember? No? It’s OK, I remembered and you can get the origins of this case here.
As you’ll see, it’s a cute headline, from the Daily News’s Barbara Ross:
British brewery heiress Daphne Guinness must pay for flooding her downstairs neighbors’ apartment, a Manhattan judge ruled Wednesday.
Hedge fund manager Karim Samii and his wife, Tina, said Guinness caused $1 million in damages to their $12 million Fifth Ave. apartment across from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Richard Braun agreed, though he rejected the Samiis’ demand for an additional pain-and-suffering payment.
