A bitter and divisive power struggle that has been simmering behind the scenes for years within the Stronach family is about to boil over very publicly in a court of law.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

It's probably going to take a fleet of forensic accountants to figure out whether there has actually been financial malfeasance by the defendants. :shock:
I can't help but think about the fact that Frank is 86. I know some octogenarians are still mentally sharp...but many of them aren't. Is this a case of a proud, stubborn, elderly man having a fit because the family decided to take the car keys away from him?

So, to translate...
Frank got bored just having a huge commercial empire, told Belinda she was in charge, and invaded Austria.
Belinda likely messed up an investment or 2 and along with one of Frank's trusted accountants/lawyers has been trying to fix things and not always succeeding.
Frank finally, after taking over Austria, learned that Belinda and the deputy were not always successful, told Austria to behave if it knew what was good for it and flew back to yank on the reins, throw Belinda into the back pasture and get the horse collar back on his former deputy and get him back in the furrow.
No one listened. The wife liked having new clothes, and the kids had tossed the uniforms and discovered that the WWF had some cute girl costumes again. They pretty much yelled "Hell no, we won't go!"
This eventually caused Frank to have yet another tantrum, this time in court, since yelling doesn't seem to have any effect any more.

No, in Frank's case, it was taking away the keys to the bank vault.
