Princess taken to Court
Princess Fined for Absconding Furniture
A Paris court on Wednesday ordered a European princess to pay a $2,430 fine and $13,370 in damages for removing furniture that was due to be seized by bailiffs in lieu of an unpaid hotel bill of $148,280.
The luxury Royal Monceau Hotel accused Princess Ira de Furstenberg, a long-standing client, of removing $13,370 worth of furniture from her Paris apartment ahead of a visit by bailiffs in July 2004.
The aristocrat's lawyer, Emannuel Trink, said his client was considering an appeal.
Furstenberg, a former actress, is the daughter of a Liechtenstein prince.
