He wants his powder room pedestal sink back

Two high-rollers who have fought over a sprawling lakefront compound in North Idaho are back in court, trying to determine who can keep hundreds of fixtures, appliances and other items removed from that home just before a foreclosure sale last month.

The latest contention erupted shortly after the 11,000-square-foot home on Mica Bay changed hands during a foreclosure proceeding on April 14-15.

Dana Martin, owner of a Los Angeles-based car dealership, is now the owner of the home and two adjacent lots on the west shore of Lake Coeur d’Alene.

Losing the home through foreclosure was Arizona developer Denny Ryerson, a 69-year-old Gonzaga University regent who had built the house as his and his wife’s dream retirement home. Tom Sowa, SR

Among the missing furnishings: a French-made gas cooking range valued at $45,000, a 20-foot-long iron chandelier worth about $40,000 – and of course the bathroom sink. Do you think Ryerson should return the items?
