Circus scions bring feud into federal courtroom

Associated Press - May 9, 2011
WASHINGTON (AP) - The scions of the family entertainment empire built on the Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey circus have brought their decades-old feud into a federal courtroom.
In opening arguments Monday, Karen Feld and her brother Kenneth Feld impugned each other's motives during the 2007 memorial service for the woman who reared them.
Karen Feld is suing her brother for $110 million because she says his long-running hostility toward her led him to have his security guards assault her as they removed her from their aunt Shirley's memorial service. An attorney for Kenneth Feld, who now owns the circus, responded that his sister "lives in fantasy land" and suggested she had more interest in grabbing their aunt's jewelry than mourning her death.
The judge says the trial may last three weeks.
