The heat is off
in lawsuit against the homeless

A New York City antiques dealer has rerouted the hot air that came up from a grate in front of his store to a locked alley in the back -- in an attempt to get rid of the homeless man who camped out in front of his store window.

Karl Kemp made headlines after slapping 64-year-old vagrant Roger Greenlee with a $1 million lawsuit. See previous post here.

The grate once had a temperature of 109 degrees. But after the work was done, the New York Daily News reported the temperature above the grate was just under 39 degrees.
