If Justin Bieber Eggs Your House, You Can Request $1 Million in Damages
Well, according to new court documents filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, Bieber’s neighbor, Jeffrey Schwartz, is upset that Bieber’s legal team capped the damages he’s allowed to file against the singer at $25,000. The documents, obtained by People, allege that the damages would cover Schwartz’s family’s “pain and suffering, emotional distress and property damage.”
Schwartz also cites an incident in March 2013 when he asked Bieber to drive slower in their neighborhood and Bieber responded by spitting in his face. “Following the offensive and indecent attack on Mr. Schwartz, Bieber continued to harass, intimidate, and threaten the Schwartz family at every opportunity possible, which included yelling obscenities and threats at the Plaintiffs and their minor daughter, as well as making anti-Semitic statements to Plaintiff,” read the documents.
Bieber pled no contest in the egging incident, received two years probation, and paid Schwartz $89,000 in restitution for damages to his home. Schwartz asserts that the damages tremendously exceed the $25,000 cap, estimating that they “exceed $1 million.”
