2008_09_lecall.jpgA judge yesterday threw out the million dollar lawsuit over a broken umbrella filed by Nelio Balan, the owner of Madison Avenue hotspot Nello's. The judge then issued Balan's lawyer a $500 fine for wasting the court's time. Balan sued lingerie model Le Call over a $5000 umbrella he had loaned her and then never got back for a year, only to receive it back torn and tattered. He claimed he suffered "emotional distress" over the loss. With the lawsuit behind him, Balan's only hopes are for compensation of the cathartic sort. "An apology is in order. It's what is civilized...She never returned it. Is that normal, is that polite?" Balan said.
