Zhang is being sued by two lawyers for breaking China's one-child policy, in what they are calling a protest against rich people flouting the rules. Jia Fangyi said Friday, Dec. 6, 2013, he and Guo Chengxi want Zhang to pay 1 billion yuan ($164 million) in compensation for the use of public services and as a punishment. Although Zhang already faces a fine that could run into the millions of dollars, Jia said he and Guo didn't feel that was enough to deter other wealthy people from defying the regulations.
