Divorce Appeal Claims Rejected

The Connecticut Appellate Division has rejected the appeal of a divorcing wife and affirmed the judgment of the trial court. The court rejected claims that the trial court had abused its discretion in its disposition of the case and had improperly declined to hold the divorcing husband in contempt. The husband was a retired Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz partner; the wife a former professional model born in Brazil who was 28 years his junior.

The court in a separate opinion affirmed the denial of the wife's post-judgment motion to recuse the judge based on allegation that the husband had been given advance notice of the court's decision. The court found the claim to be both speculative and discredited. (Mike Frisch)
