In the 9th floor hallway of the Criminal Court building right after Rachelle Short exited Judge Fidler's courtroom for the lunch break, she was served with papers regarding the civil suit brought against her and her husband and their agent by the Westin Bonaventure. Back in June of last year, the Westin Bonaventure filed court papers suing Mr. and Mrs. Spector over non-payment of a hotel bill totaling over $104,000.
During the first trial, Phil Spector and his wife Rachelle stayed at the Westin Bonaventure. They also reserved rooms for their legal team and experts that testified in the first trial. According to this story, Phil Spector didn't pay the bill in the hopes of getting a discount. Immediately after receiving the papers today, Rachelle Short threw the papers on a bench in the hallway of the 9th floor.
