Estate trustees step down and get sued over disagreement about partying at estate.
The Earl of Cardigan, whose ancestor led the Charge of the Light Brigade, has been involved with a pop star and a fight is now going on. One might think it was a love tryst but they would be wrong, according to the Telegraph in "Earl of Cardigan's lawyer quit in latest storm to hit troubled estate."
It appears that a trustee of the estate rented a house on the Earl's estate to the British pop star Pete Doherty, who is notorious for throwing parties and causing large amounts of damage. It is not surprising that is exactly what Doherty is alleged to have done at the estate.
The latest bit of news is that another attorney acting as a trustee for the estate, has also stepped down and has been vague about the reasons for doing so.
It is not clear what will eventually happen with this estate.
If the Earl cannot get along with his attorneys, he might find it much harder to get new ones to work as trustees for his estate.
