Actor William H. Macy is now among the weeds, or rather, among the trees, due to a lawsuit filed against him by a neighbor late last month.
Pierce Brown, who owns a property adjacent to Macy’s in Los Angeles, filed a lawsuit alleging that in 2021 workers employed by Macy’s removed or otherwise severely damaged large numbers of pine trees on Brown’s property without his permission or knowledge while Brown was on vacation. . .
When Brown, in his suit, returns from his trip and discovers the major changes being made to his garden, he claims that Macy’s workers admitted to breaking into Brown’s property without permission and destroying its trees and vegetation.
“Macy’s behavior… has caused Brown to depreciate the property, loss of enjoyment and use of the property, loss of privacy, increased noise, as well as emotional distress, irritation, distress and discomfort.” reads suit.
Brown is seeking $500,000 in damages as well as $100,000 in general compensation to re-stabilize his slope and repair the damage to the root systems that Macy’s workers allegedly destroyed. The Daily Beast was unable to reach Brown’s lawyers and Macy for comment.
Macy’s wife, Felicity Huffman, was sentenced to 14 days in prison in 2019 after pleading guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest service mail fraud as part of the “Operation Varsity Blues” college admissions scandal.
