FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Chuck Yeager, the first person to fly faster than the speed of sound, has been ordered by a California judge to pay more than $40,000 in fees to a homeowners association.

Superior Court Judge Judy Hersher in Sacramento issued the ruling Monday after a trial earlier this year.

The Park River Oak Estates Homeowners Association had filed suit against Yeager, a 91-year-old retired Air Force brigadier general, and his 55-year-old wife Victoria, claiming the couple hadn’t paid their association fees on two units they own in a Sacramento complex.

Hersher said the Yeagers owed fees totaling $43,150 for services performed on the units and benefits that they received over the past eight years.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/1mo0Odq ) that both the plaintiffs’ attorney, Eugene Haydu, and the defendants’ attorney, Michael Thomas, said they were happy with the decision.
