Chuck Yeager facing lawsuit in Sacramento
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Retired Air Force Brig. Gen. Chuck Yeager, the first person to fly faster than the speed of sound, is facing a very different type of challenge -- this one in a Sacramento courtroom.
A homeowners association, Park River Oak Estates, is suing Yeager and his wife, saying they owe about $28,000 in fees on two units they own in a town house complex in Sacramento. The Sacramento Bee reports (http://bit.ly/1kVAO7e) that the 90-year-old Yeager was in court on Tuesday for the case, which has gone to trial.
The Yeagers' attorney, Michael Thomas, says the Yeagers' properties were never annexed to the association.
Yeager told the Bee he has seen more interesting cases, such as the time he presided over the court martial of a colonel who was charged with strafing a Soviet ship.
