Burkle v. Burkle (Cal. Ct. App. - July 28, 2006)

What a banner year it's been in the California Court of Appeal for billionaire Ronald Burkle. First, in January, he lost his bid to keep documents under seal in his wife's divorce action against him. But that was only one of the multiple lawsuits against him by members of his own family. Today, Justice Boland -- along with Cooper and Rubin, each of whom were also on the earlier panel -- hands him another loss, this time reversing a grant of summary judgment to him in the lawsuit filed against Burkle by his daughter.

Both your wife and your daughter are filing lawsuits against you. What a wonderful life. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy all over.
