FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Chuck Yeager, the first person to fly faster than the speed of sound, has been ordered by a California judge to pay more than $40,000 in fees to a homeowners association.
Superior Court Judge Judy Hersher in Sacramento issued the ruling Monday after a trial earlier this year.
The Park River Oak Estates Homeowners Association had filed suit against Yeager, a 91-year-old retired Air Force brigadier general, and his 55-year-old wife Victoria, claiming the couple hadn't paid their association fees on two units they own in a Sacramento complex.
Hersher said the Yeagers owed fees totaling $43,150 for services performed on the units and benefits that they received over the past eight years.
The Sacramento Bee reports that both the plaintiffs' attorney, Eugene Haydu, and the defendants' attorney, Michael Thomas, said they were happy with the decision.©2014 Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.
