Record producer Phil Spector, who was convicted of the 2003 murder of actress Lana Clarkson, filed a lawsuit Thursday from prison, TMZ.com reports. The suit against the city of Alhambra, Calif., claims a local government construction project is destroying Spector’s mansion.
TMZ reports: “According to the lawsuit, the city commissioned a construction project on the hill where Phil’s house is located — a project that has since 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 suit by Spector and his wife, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, seeks unspecified damages and compensation for loss of property value, according to the report.
Spector, who was convicted in 2009 of shooting Clarkson to death in the foyer of the house, is serving a sentence of 19 years to life, the story notes.
