Hugh Hefner has responded to estranged wife, Kimberly Conrad's request that her $5 million dollar lawsuit against him be heard in a civil law court, contending it's a family law matter.

Kimberly sued Hef because he gave her nine months to vacate a home next to the Playboy Mansion that she has lived in since they separated. Hef then formally filed for divorce.
In the court documents Hugh states that once the divorce is finalized, Kimberly's civil suit against him will be moot.
"The only remaining piece of the civil action is Mrs. Hefner's claim for reimbursements for the monies expended on the Mapleton property. The Court in the Dissolution Action will have to decide each party's claims for reimbursements against each other. Once it makes that determination, her claims for "declaratory relief" and "damages" are moot.
“Again, contrary to Mrs. Hefner's suggestion, interpretation of rights under prenuptial and separation agreements is the bread and butter of a family law action."
