Rush Alex Sues Hotel Over Altercation

June 04, 2005 03:51:24 GMT

Alex Zivojinovich of the band Rush, along with son Justin Zivojinovich and daughter-in-law Michelle, filed lawsuit against the Ritz-Carlton, its security director and three sheriff's deputies Thursday in U.S. District Court. The three of them try seeking an unspecified amount of monetary damages for injuries, pain and suffering, mental anguish and the costs of their defense in criminal cases.

As for the beginning of the case, it was all stemming from a New Year's Eve 2003 altercation at the Naples hotel when Justin and his companions agitated hotel security as they got up on a platform when the house band was taking a break at a party to ring in 2004. Soon thereafter, as mentioned in the lawsuit, deputies who responded to a call by hotel security "applied illegal and unjustified force, and such force was excessive," causing Justin "severe discomfort and pain."

Princess of Wales' Wedding Dress Auctioned

June 04, 2005 03:06:12 GMT

"They are possibly the most exclusive and undoubtedly unique piece of royal memorabilia ever to come out of England. Obviously, if the price is right, I'd be a fool not to sell. It depends who wants it." That's the reason why Gavin Young sells Princess Diana's wedding dress, he got from his parents, on internet auction house eBay for a staggering $2 million.

Young claims his parents got the gown from London dress designers Elizabeth and David Emmanuel following Diana's 1981 wedding to Prince Charles, as a thank you gift, because their daughter Kerry had been their children's au pair for nine months. Now, as he has the gown in his hand, Young puts the five scraps of silk and lace in the higher-priced property section, but insists any negotiable price is possible.

Coldplay Can't Avoid Internet Leak

June 04, 2005 02:22:46 GMT

Though modern technology can help you a lot, it would sometimes also endanger your "life." One of the modern technology misuse victims is band Coldplay. The music group has been put in jeopardy after their new album "X&Y" leaked online just days before its official U.S. and U.K. release.

The Internet jacking has obviously shocked either Coldplay or their label, EMI/Capitol, who all so concerned about keeping the disc from appearing online by sending out limited, watermarked review discs for select journalists under a false name and allowed other music critics to review the album by setting up listening rooms in the corporate offices in London, Los Angeles and New York with iPods in locked cabinets.
