New York is the only state in the country that doesn't allow no-fault divorces. While Chief Judge Judith Kaye recently proposed that the state permit them, the legislature has been slow to turn the option into law and its skepticism has support. Our readers may enjoy the ongoing on-line debate that began Monday on this issue between Wharton Assistant Professor of Business and Public Policy, Justin Wolfers, and University of Pennsylvania Jules F. and Frances L. Landry Professor of Law, Professor Katherine S. Spaht. The debate over whether New York should allow “no-fault” divorces occurred at the Paul M.Herbert Law Center of Louisiana State University.
