Businessman Wins Divorce Dispute Over Classic Car Collection

Royal courtBusinessman Clive Joy-Morancho and his estranged wife Nichola Joy have been involved in a tussle over money after the breakdown of their five-year marriage.  Mr. Joy-Morancho has secured a victory over his massive collection of about 35 classic automobiles.  Ms. Joy wanted some of the cars to be transferred to her as part of a divorce payout, but a judge in the Family Division of the High Court in London has dismissed her claims.  According to Mr. Joy-Morancho the car collection belonged to a company that he had ties with.  The divorced couple have extreme disagreements over the distribution of marital property.
