Buzz Aldrin has sued his own family in response to disagreements about the management of his financial affairs.
This is one of those stories that is hard to interpret or analyze. The facts as presented by either side could justify their actions, and thus it is hard to say what really caused the rift. It will require a full court case to settle it.
