Court denies appeal of circus family assault suit
Tuesday - 7/31/2012, 10:57am EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) - A court has turned down an appeal from the sister of the CEO of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus who claimed her estranged brother had her assaulted by private security guards.
A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Tuesday called her appeal "without merit and easily rejected."
Karen Feld lost her $110 million lawsuit last year against circus CEO Kenneth Feld. She had claimed that Kenneth Feld's private security guards assaulted her when they threw her out of their late aunt's shiva (a Jewish mourning ritual) held at a condo owned by Kenneth Feld.
The appeals court rejected Karen Feld's argument that Kenneth Feld was not entitled to use force to remove her from the building.
