New York judge rules Courtney Love responsible for missing jewellery
London: A New York judge has ruled Courtney Love responsible for a collection of expensive jewellery that went missing after she borrowed it for a public appearance.
Jacob and Co. boss Jacob Arabo sued the 47-year-old singer last year over claims the company allegedly lent her two diamond chains, a bracelet and a pair of earrings, which were worth more than 66,667 pounds and were never returned, the Daily Express reported.
The ‘Nobody’s Daughter’ hitmaker alleges that she gave the items to staff at New York’s Mercer Hotel with instructions to return them to the company and claimed that the workers successfully returned the bracelet but lost a bag containing the other items.
Doris Ling-Cohan, a Manhattan court judge who filed a police report in November, 2010 over the missing jewellery, has now ruled that Love is responsible for the loss of the gems.
The ruling, which was made public on 18th October states that Jacob may not ask Love for the full retail price of the items, but just the “reasonable value/market value”.
