Sisters Sue Dad Over College Tuition
June 24, 2013 by UPI - United Press International, Inc.
NEW YORK, (UPI) — Four women filed a lawsuit in New York against their father, claiming he backed out on a promise to pay for his youngest daughter’s college tuition.
Nora, Magdalena, Ina and Lola Kelleher filed the lawsuit against their father, Daniel Kelleher, a child psychologist based in Connecticut, in the Manhattan Supreme Court, the New York Post reported Saturday.
The lawsuit alleges Daniel Kelleher agreed to give his daughters his Paris apartment and half of a checking account he shared with their mother, Sylvie Furstenberg, his ex-wife. The apartment generates rental income of about $2,600 a month.
Nora, Magdalena and Ina further agreed to give their portions of the income from the Paris apartment to pay for half of Lola’s tuition at Oberlin College. The other half of Lola’s tuition was supposed to be paid for by their father, the lawsuit alleges.
The parties involved signed documents on the agreement in June 2012.
Daniel Kelleher “breached his contract with [his daughters] by failing and refusing to perform in good faith his obligation to transfer the monthly rental income less any maintenance charges from the Paris apartment for the months of July and August 2012 to his four daughters,” the lawsuit alleges.
The sisters are seeking $5,300 in tuition, the suit said.
Neither Daniel Kelleher nor Sylvie Furstenberg has commented on the case publicly, the newspaper said..
