Cory Lidle Estate Sued

An architect has sued the estate of late New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle, claiming his home was destroyed and he was emotionally injured when the ballplayer's small airplane crashed into his apartment building.

Stephane Sparta says in court papers that after Lidle's Cirrus SR-20 aircraft crashed on Oct. 11, 2006, into the Upper East Side Manhattan building where he lives, he was forced to abandon his 41st-floor apartment.

Sparta's court papers say parts of the airplane wreckage "exploded" into his living room, "setting the contents on fire and otherwise destroying the apartment and the property therein."

Sparta's court papers say, "The crash, the explosion, and the resulting fire and smoke caused by the aircrash of Oct. 11, 2006, caused plaintiff extreme terror and fear for his life."

Sparta suffered "extensive mental anguish, emotional distress and fear of physical harm," according to the lawsuit, the third filed against the Lidle estate as a result of the crash.

    I also think it's stupid. Just a couple cheap bastards trying to make an easy buck.
    It's bad enough Cory Lidle's widow and son have to suffer with his loss, and to throw on a lawsuit is just plain inhumane.

    This reminds me of the episode "The Bris" on Seinfeld.

    Seriously though, it's rough to have all your stuff destroyed, but I don't think Cory Lidle's family should have to suffer anymore. This is nothing but proof that the justice system is out of whack. This needs to get thrown right out of the courtroom
