Rich People Suing Other Rich People

Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, Wal-Mart heiress Nancy Walton Laurie is suing mansion purveyor Mohamed Hadid, holding out for $90,000 because his construction is hurting her tree. Apparently Hadid "cut the roots to the family's cherished eucalyptus tree," which is causing "severe damage" to the tree, the family, and precious world order. Counterpoint, from Hadid's lawyers: "We have an arborist who says the tree is thriving, and at one point in time was suffering from the drought." [Curbed LA]
