This is one of the more interesting lawsuits we’ve come across recently: Quentin Tarantino is suing his neighbor, True Blood creator Alan Ball, for having noisy pet birds. Tarantino lives next door to Ball and his partner Peter Macdissi and says that the outdoor aviary full of incredibly loud macaws that the couple installed on their property is basically ruining his life. The lawsuit explains:
“On a daily basis Defendant’s Macaws, large tropical birds known for their loud squawks and screams, are placed in an outdoor aviary where they emit blood-curdling screams at random intervals for 7 to 8 hours each day, Nearly every day, Mr. Tarantino and other in his home are subjected to the Macaws obnoxious pterodactyl-like screams, which are not only starling, but have also seriously disrupted Mr. Tarantino’s ability to work as a writer in his home.”
Hashtag this story #RichPeopleProblems or maybe #KillBallVolume2? Ball had better watch out though, if there’s one thing Tarantino is a master at, it’s coming up with creative ways of avenging those who have been wronged, and these birds might provide some inspiration.
