Dr. Richard Lopez, a well-known orthodontist in Ocean County who owns the property, has filed a lawsuit against the family for at least $15,000. Among other issues, he contends they have stigimitized the property and diminished his ability to rent or sell the house in the future. Their story has received international media attention since it was first reported in the Courier-Post on April 13.
