CHICAGO (AP) — Attorneys for a teenage actress who claims her relatives drained her trust funds of more than $1 billion asked a judge to freeze assets of the family’s Pritzker Foundation.
The motion, filed on behalf of 18-year-old Liesel Pritzker, says part of the money went to the Pritzker Foundation.
The case began in November, when Pritzker sued her father and other members of the well-known Chicago family, which controls more than $15 billion in assets, including the Hyatt hotel chain.
----------
Has anybody actually heard of this family?<p>I've heard of Hyatt, sure, but the Pritzker family?

And Liesel has appeared in a few fairly big movies, including playing the president's daughter in 'Air Force One' starring Harrison Ford ... That story has been front page news in Chicago. (I think the NYT had a p.1 story on this case as well ...)
