Rod Stewart gets served
Tuesday, the firm Glaser, Weil, Fink, Jacobs, Howard & Shapiro filed a $3.3 million lawsuit against the British crooner, claiming he owes them for work on three cases.
One of the cases involved Stewart's cancellation of a December 2000 show in Las Vegas. If that case's outcome is any indication of Stewart's luck in court, he better be prepared to whip out his checkbook. A federal jury decided in favor of the Rio hotel-casino, awarding a $2 million settlement for the canceled show.
The phrase "you've been served" is a familiar one in the Stewart family. In 2007, Stewart's son Sean was sued for "shock, horror, fright, worry, grief, shame, embarrassment, anger, chagrin and nausea" experienced by Toluabus and Ericka Stein. Sean Stewart also did a stint in the slammer in 2002 for drug and assault charges.
