Nation in brief: Linda Lay sued by condo neighbors

The neighbors of the widow of Enron Corp. founder Kenneth Lay have sued her, accusing her of not paying her share of fees associated with living in one of Houston’s most exclusive high-rises.

Linda Lay is already fighting an attempt by the federal government to seize nearly $13 million from Kenneth Lay’s estate, including the family condominium at The Huntingdon.

The lawsuit by The Huntingdon Council of Co-Owners seeks more than $100,000 in unpaid fees from Linda Lay or foreclosure of her condo, which tax records value at about $4.75 million.

In court documents, Linda Lay’s attorney, David Jones, denied all the allegations in the high-rise’s lawsuit and asked that she be awarded her costs for fighting the claims.

Firings planned over Spears file

The Medical Center at the University of California, Los Angeles, is taking steps to fire at least 13 employees and has suspended at least six others for snooping in the confidential medical records of pop star Britney Spears, according to an anonymous person who claimed to be familiar with the matter.

An additional six physicians also face discipline for peeking at Spears’ computerized records, the person said Friday.

Spears was recently hospitalized in UCLA’s psychiatric ward. The records reviewed by those who are slated to be fired were not from Spears’ most recent hospital stay but rather from previous hospitalizations at UCLA, according to the source.
