      From Wikipedia:
      Von Bülow's mother Jonna belonged to the old Danish-German noble family Bülow, originally from Mecklenburg, one of whom, the conductor Hans von Bülow, was first husband of Cosima, the second wife of Richard Wagner. Claus von Bülow's father was the Danish playwright Svend Borberg. Claus was the maternal grandson of Fritz Bülow, a Danish lawyer, Minister of Justice from 1910-1913 and President of the first Chamber of the Danish Parliament.

      Clarendon Court, Yznaga Street and Bellevue Avenue, Newport, RI, USAClaus von Bülow graduated from Trinity College, Cambridge, and worked as personal assistant to J. Paul Getty after having practised law in London in the 1950s. Getty wrote that von Bülow showed "remarkable forbearance and good nature" as Getty's occasional whipping boy. Von Bülow remained with Getty until 1968. On June 6, 1966, von Bülow married Sunny, the American ex-wife of Prince Alfred of Auersperg. Sunny has a son and a daughter from her first marriage, and she and von Bülow have a daughter, Cosima Iona von Bülow, born in 1967.

      In 1982, von Bülow was tried for the attempted murder of Sunny, which allegedly occurred at her estate, Clarendon Court, in Newport, Rhode Island. At the trial in Newport, von Bülow was found guilty and sentenced to thirty years in prison; he appealed, hiring Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz to represent him. Professor Dershowitz and associates rendered doubtful the first trial's most damning evidence and testimony; in 1984 the conviction was reversed; in 1985, after a second trial, von Bülow was found not guilty on all charges.

      Sunny von Bülow continued to live almost 28 years in a vegetative state until dying at a New York nursing home on December 6, 2008.

      At the second trial the defence called eight medical experts, all world-class university professors, who testified that Sunny's two comas were not caused by insulin, but by a combination of ingested (not injected) drugs, alcohol, and chronic health conditions. The experts were John Caronna (chairman of neurology, Cornell); Leo Dal Cortivo (former president, U.S. Toxicology Association); Ralph DeFronzo (medicine, Yale); Kurt Dubowski (forensic pathology, University of Oklahoma); Daniel Foster (medicine, University of Texas); Daniel Furst, medicine, University of Iowa); Harold Lebovitz (director of clinical research, State University of New York); Vincent Marks (clinical biochemistry, Surrey, vice-president Royal College of Pathologists and president, Association of Clinical Biochemistry); and Arthur Rubinstein (medicine, University of Chicago).

      Other experts testified that the hypodermic needle tainted with insulin on the outside (but not inside) would have been dipped in insulin but not injected (Injecting it in flesh would have wiped it clean). Evidence also showed that Sunny's hospital admission three weeks before the final coma showed she had ingested at least 73 aspirin tablets, a quantity that could only have been self-administered, and which indicated her state of mind.[2]

      Sunny's family remained convinced of Claus's guilt. For having sided with her father, Cosima von Bülow was disinherited by her maternal grandmother, Annie Laurie (Crawford) Aitken. Von Bülow's two stepchildren from Sunny's previous marriage sued him for $56 million. As a result, von Bülow renounced his claim to Sunny's $75 million personal fortune in exchange for Cosima's reinstatement as joint heiress to the Crawford fortune.

      Currently, von Bülow lives in London, writing art and theatre reviews.
