Do You Expect Me To Talk? No Mr. Bond, I Expect You To Pay For Emotional Distress

I saw this nugget today and was just overwhelmed by its sheer goofyness. This whole story reads like an British tabloid primer on litigious Noo Yawkers, or a field guide to stereotypical American urban psychosis. Besides, I can't get the image of aFinding Forrester era Connery all liquored up and pounding on the walls shouting "You're the man now, dog!" in his thick brogue.

BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Neighbour sues actor Sean Connery
Sir Sean Connery is being sued for $30m (£15.7m) by a New York neighbour who claimed the actor played loud music and permitted an infestation of rats.
Dr Burton Sultan said the actor, 74, lived in a Manhattan apartment owned by Sir Sean's son Stephane.

He alleged Sir Sean often played loud music and allowed workers to create noise, fumes and dripping water.

A spokeswoman for the actor said Connery was "rarely" in New York and called the claim "ridiculous".
