Leonardo DiCaprio Settles Neighbours' Dispute
by Staff

Leonardo DiCaprio has settled a court battle over the construction of a basketball court at his Hollywood home.

The Titanic star and his cousin Robert Hrtica, from whom DiCaprio rents the Hollywood Hills home, were sued by neighbours Ronald and Joan Linclau last May (07) for allegedly causing damage to their property.

The Linclau alleged DiCaprio "maliciously" cut and removed hedges; excavated "earth, granite and bedrock", destabilising their deck and swimming pool; and ignored their repeated requests to halt the 2004 construction.

They attempted to sue for trespass, nuisance and negligence and sought $250,000 (£125,000) in compensation.

But the legal dispute has now been solved according to a notice of settlement filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday (26Jun08).

No further details of the settlement were available as WENN went to press. (c) WENN
