Ronald and Joan Linclau are seeking at least $250,000 in damages for trespass, removal of lateral and subjacent support of land, and nuisance, according to court documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
When DiCaprio installed the court several years ago, the complaint states, the construction extended onto the Linclau's property, destabilizing the slope behind their house and resulting in the removal of some of their plants.
The suit does not mention whether the pool itself was harmed or merely endangered.
DiCaprio, meanwhile, knew that the work was going to affect his neighbors' property, ignored their demands to stop and has refused to pay for any of the damage, according to the Linclaus.
Leo had no comment. Whatever happened to good ole' figuring things out like adults. Everyone is suing each other's asses these days! Sue! Sue! Sue! These people should handle things the rational way by beating the shit out of him! That's the REAL American way!
