WASHINGTON (AP) — The widow of Hollywood producer Aaron Spelling is suing a Maryland auction house that sold part of her extensive collection of antique dolls, claiming it owes her money and failed to return unsold dolls.

Candy Spelling filed the lawsuit against Annapolis-based Theriault’s at the end of April. The lawsuit, which was filed in California, claims that the auction house didn’t live up to its contract because it failed to give her a timely accounting of the sold items and pay her for them.

The president of Theriault’s says the lawsuit does not represent an accurate description of the events surrounding the collection’s sale and that Spelling has been paid for the items.
