The Rich and Their Legal Teams

| Wed Aug. 17, 2011 11:32 AM EDT

Here's a lovely story worth a few minutes of your time today: a pair of rich assholes move into one of the most popular ballooning spots in the country, build a gigantic and secretive "Moorish fortress castle" catering to "ultra high net worth individuals," and then start suing the balloonists out of existence because they don't like people flying over their exclusive getaway property. Not so lovely after all. But today they finally caved in thanks to a pro bono lawyer who finally fought back. Lovely again!
