If you're going to write an anti-Katy Perry story, make sure that you find the raunchiest photo you can find:
The nuns filed suit against the Archdiocese last month over the proposed sale of the sprawling property, situated on a Los Feliz hilltop with “expansive views of downtown Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Mountains,” the Los Angeles Times reports.
The legal battle arises out of competing deals to sell the parcel: the Archdiocese is trying to push an all-cash sale to Katy Perry, while the nuns would prefer to see the land go to a developer who would pay $100,000 upfront and $10 million on a promissory note.
The court case is essentially asking a judge to determine which group has the authority to sell the property, but the issues—some faith-based, some legal—run much deeper. The Archdiocese, the nuns say, has repeatedly lied to them and tried to bully them into selling to Perry, who they apparently object to on moral grounds.
It's a real estate dispute. It has nothing to do with immoral behavior and everything to do with sentimentalism. Guess what happens when being sentimental runs up against California real estate laws? The judge will throw out signed documents and legal precedents and see this raunchy picture of Katy Perry and rule in favor of the nuns.
