Lucille Ball letters, awards to be sold at auction

Lucille Ball letters, awards to be sold at auction

Some of Lucille Ball's love letters and awards will be sold at auction after a judge ruled to block the sale but imposed a hurdle that the comedienne's daughter cannot overcome.
Although Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert O'Brien agreed to block the sale Friday, he imposed a US$250,000 bond that Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill would have to pay to get a restraining order issued. Her attorney, Ronald Palmieri, said the amount is too high and can't be met.
"We won on a legal basis, and the judge took it away from us on an economic basis," Palmieri said. "That is very sad."
Luckinbill is the daughter of Ball and first husband Desi Arnaz. She sought the return of some of the items after Susie Morton, the widow of Ball's second husband, Gary Morton, offered them for sale.
