    A 16-story Upper West Side apartment building mired in a dispute between a woman and her aging stepfather that bounced among New York, Florida and California courts, is scheduled to be sold at auction in May, with bids starting at nearly $18 million, federal bankruptcy records show.

    The woman, Claudia Raffone, who lives in Beverly Hills, Calif., and the stepfather, Henry Douglas Campbell, of Manhattan, have battled each other since at least 2003 over the 49-unit building at 114 West 86th Street, located between Columbus and Amsterdam avenues.
