Leonardo DiCaprio's Property Lawsuit

Last year it was Purple Pain for Prince's Landlord.  This year's celebrity lawsuit involves the basketball court that Leonardo DiCaprio is putting on his property.  According to people.com, his neighbors filed a lawsuit "alleging that DiCaprio's backyard renovation for the recreation area has caused damage to their uphill property since July 2004. DiCaprio 'maliciously' crossed onto the couple's property, cutting and removing hedges, excavating 'earth, granite and bedrock,' which has destabilized their deck and pool, the Superior Court suit alleges."

Thanks to the magic of the internet and tmz.com, here's the complaint.

This has all the makings of a great classroom discussion.
