AUSTIN — David and Suzanne Saperstein aren't the first couple to take a fight about alimony to the Texas Supreme Court. But they definitely are one of the richest . . . .David, 66, became a billionaire building a company that reported on traffic snarls. [Edit: Huh? You can get rich off of that?]
Suzanne, 45, [Edit: 22 years younger? Hey, now!] loves haute couture [Edit: I don't even know what that is] and lives in Los Angeles, where the couple's 45,000-square-foot French-style chateau was the subject of a seven-page spread in the April 2002 issue of Vanity Fair. [Edit: That, my friends, is one big house.]
In her legal brief, Suzanne said she was surprised in July 2005 when David lured her out of the family's Gulfstream jet [Edit: Kill me] when it landed in Houston for a stopover on the way to Europe [Edit: Double kill me]. He said he wanted to talk about some serious issues regarding the children; once outside the plane he had her served with divorce papers.
