Legendary producer Phil Spector, currently in jail for causing the death of one time actress Lana Clarkson at his Beverly Hills home in 2003, is suing the City Of Alhambra, California, for allegedly damaging the property where Clarkson died.

According to TMZ, Spector says that the city has commissioned a construction project on the hill where his home stands, and that work has caused damaged to his house. He is suing for unspecified damages and compensation for loss of property value.

Given 72 year old Spector is serving nineteen years for the murder of Clarkson, and he saw his appeal to the US Supreme Court turned down in February, you might wonder why he is so concerned about his former home. But then, to be fair, his wife Rachelle does still live there, so if there really is serious damage, the action does make sense.
