Record producer and songwriter Phil Spector, who is currently in jail, has reportedly filed a lawsuit against the Alhambra city officials, claiming the house where he murdered actress Lana Clarkson in 2003 is being destroyed by a local government construction project.
According to reports, 72-year-old Phil Spector and his wife filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Thursday. The music mogul claims a city-commissioned construction on the hill where his Alhambra city home stands caused the retaining wall that supports the hill to start cracking. As a result of the cracked wall, Phil claims there have been landslides and land-sinking problems – causing significant damage to his house. The property of Phil Spector is said to be the biggest residential building in the area. Now, he is suing the Alhambra city officials for unspecified damages to cover the massive repair costs, as well as compensation for loss of property value.
Phil Spector was convicted of the crime in 2009 and is currently serving 19 years to life behind bars – but that didn’t stop him from taking care of business at home, where his wife Rachelle still lives.
Back in February, Spector lost his latest bid for freedom when Supreme Court officials turned down his request to appeal his conviction.
In 2009, Phil Spector was convicted of shooting Lana Clarkson in the foyer of the house, even though he insisted that Lana Clarkson shot herself. He’s currently serving a sentence of 19 years to life.
