Hotel Builder Sues Sinatra + Falk
The builder of a hotel complex in Los Angeles has launched legal action against singer Nancy Sinatra and COLUMBO actor Peter Falk - accusing the pair of attempting to derail the project.
The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills is currently undergoing redevelopment, and local residents - including Sinatra and Falk - have opposed the scheme.
People living in the area are due to vote on the proposed expansion in November (08), and Sinatra and Falk plan on publishing their thoughts on the project in a leaflet, which will be included inside the ballot papers.
And now the developer, Karim Kano, has filed a complaint against the plans - insisting voters should not be given "misleading details" about the expansion, according to TMZ.com.
The suit, filed on Tuesday (12Aug08) against the City Clerk of Beverly Hills and the Registrar of Voters of L.A., as well as Sinatra and Falk, asks for all of the "potentially damaging" statements to be removed from the leaflet.
