Joan Rivers hit with mega lawsuit

New York - Comedian and condo board president Joan Rivers is being sued for $15m in a dispute involving a former downstairs neighbour in her luxury New York City building.

The lawsuit was filed on Wednesday in state Supreme Court in Manhattan.

The New York Daily News reports former neighbour Elizabeth Hazan signed ownership of the $2m two-bedroom unit to Real Estate Holdings Group in July.

The company contends Rivers and others ripped wires from the unit's cable box and squirted glue in its locks. It says building officials recently denied Hazan access to the apartment.

A lawyer for Rivers says he's preparing a response to the suit.

Rivers lives in the building's $30m upstairs penthouse.
