On Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012, federal authorities filed a civil suit in Detroit accusing Hathaway of fraud in a real estate transaction and seeking to seize a home she owns in Florida. The suit says Hathaway and her husband, Michael Kingsley, put a home in Windermere, Fla., in the name of Kingsley's daughter while they tried to persuade a bank to allow a short sale on their home in the Detroit suburb of Grosse Pointe Park. The lawsuit says the Windermere home was put back in the couple's hands after the short sale was approved. (AP Photo/Al Goldis, File)
