Owner of the house of “The Flintstones” reaches an agreement with the city that sued her for her sculptures

The city of Hillsborough must pay the woman $ 125,000 as compensation for the expenses incurred in the lawsuit.

The owner of a controversial ‘The Flintstones’ themed house has settled a lawsuit against the American city of Hillsborough, in California, after allowing her to keep her dinosaurs and other sculptures inspired by the 60s cartoon, local media report.

The controversy began in late 2017 when a city official noted that Florence Fang, a retired businesswoman and editor, had placed large sculptures of animated characters on her property, a sign that read «Yabba Dabba Doo» and other changes in the landscape, which were considered a public nuisance.

On several occasions they notified the woman to stop the work and warned her about a special permit to install such objects so she had to make several changes to the property.

Because Fang refused to abide by the provisions, the authorities were forced to go to court in 2019, but the defendant responded by claiming that she was being discriminated against for being Chinese.

Fang’s lawyer, Angela Alioto, said there were probably other residents who did not obtain permits for their statues or renovations, but who did not face the same type of harassment from the city because they are not Chinese.

Finally, the two parties in dispute reached an agreement that allows the owner to obtain the necessary permits and thus keep the colorful characters along with other eccentricities in her house.

In addition, the city of Hillsborough will have to pay the woman $ 125,000 as compensation for the expenses incurred by the lawsuit.
