Don't mess with Robert W. Hirsh. The 43-year-old lawyer sued the single mother he hired to stain the woodwork in his Hancock Park Tudor-style home, claiming she left some streaks on the wood. He sued his stockbroker for not getting him into Microsoft stock. After returning from a 1996 trip to Boston, Hirsh sued Pier 4 restaurateur Anthony Athanas, claiming the then-85-year-old man had assaulted him and his family after they complained about poor service.
