Fred Flintstone fought the law — and he won. Technically, the owner of the fanciful Flintstone house in a posh San Francisco suburb settled a lawsuit with the suburb, the town of Hillsborough. But the agreement will allow Fred and his friends to remain. In a dispute that pitted property rights against government rules, and played out in international media, retired publishing mogul Florence Fang defended her colorful, bulbous-shaped house and its elaborate homage to the Flintstone family, featuring Stone Age sculptures inspired by the 1960s cartoon The Flintstones, along with aliens and other oddities. The town, however, called the towering dinosaurs and life-size sculptures “a highly visible eyesore” and sued Fang, alleging she violated local codes when she put dinosaur sculptures in her backyard and made other landscaping changes that caused local officials to declare it a public nuisance. Fang countersued. The Daily Post in Palo Alto first reported news of the settlement on June 24. (AP) This article was provided by The Japan Times Alpha.
