Leaking water and suit against Actress

Three decades ago, Chennai had sprawling bungalows and big, narrow houses which generally would extend to the next street almost.  Gone are those days and now you have only apartments of various hue – big, small, ordinary, luxury and more.  The flat culture have their own drawbacks and the worst to start with is the common wall, floor, ceiling etc., that you share with your neighbours with both not knowing what exactly is right and to what extent one can go………………….  ….

My Cousin Vinny is a 1992 American comedy film written and produced by Dale Launer, directed by Jonathan Lynn.  The film deals with two young New Yorkers traveling through rural Alabama who are put on trial for a murder they did not commit, and the comic attempts of a cousin, a newly minted lawyer, to defend them.  Marisa Tomei won the Academy Award for the Best Supporting Actress for this film.  Marisa Tomei  is an American stage, film and television actress. Following her work on As The World Turns, Tomei came to prominence as a supporting cast member on The Cosby Show spinoff A Different World in 1987. After appearing in a few films, her breakthrough came in 1992 with the comedy My Cousin Vinny. 

She has appeared in many films after that and she is in news again, albeit for different reasons – a law suit by Insurance companies to be precise !!

There are reports that 3 Insurers – members of Chubb Group have reportedly filing a suit accusing her of negligence.  The cause of action reportedly is leakage from the actress’ apartment which had caused extensive water damage to the premises and properties of her Greenwich village apartment neighbours.   The affected persons had claimed compensation from their Insures and the present law suit appears to be one by the Insurance companies as subrogees.   The value is reportedly closer to $ 130000. 

Water leakage in an apartment or building affecting neighbour’s property is not uncommon – but in this part of the World, the Insurance penetration is low and not many would have Insurance coverage.  If they had one, they would claim from their Insurers.  Filing law suits against the person causing loss is not so common due to cumbersome process and the time that it might take..
