Katy Perry vs the nuns - property dispute in pictures

A Los Angeles judge is scheduled to hear arguments on Thursday, July 30, 2015, about who has the right to sell a hilltop convent that is the subject of competing offers from pop superstar Perry and a local businesswoman, Dana Hollister. The dispute has pitted Los Angeles’ Catholic archbishop against an order of elderly nuns with only five surviving members, at least two of whom oppose selling their former home to Perry.

A judge said on Thursday that it appeared the nuns had improperly sold the property to Hollister, but warned the case will take months if not years to resolve.
