Celebrity Subrogation

In loo of actual news, the prestigious British Broadcasting Corporation reports on the plumbing mishaps of the rich and famous:

Rocker Lenny Kravitz is being sued over an allegation that one of his toilets overflowed into a neighbour's apartment causing "catastrophic" water damage.

Insurance company Amica Mutual accused Kravitz in court papers of allowing "a commode to become blocked, clogged and congested with various materials"....

Amica said it had had to pay $333,849.77 to fix Mr Disend's apartment on the floor below Kravitz's flat in their building in Manhattan's SoHo district.
You've got to love the lawyering for the insurance company, too: Blocked, clogged AND congested -- they're not kidding around!
