New York case may give other spouses pause before they go public with ex bashing
The wife was all set to take home a good payday. Half of her husbands assets totaling $2.5 million dollars. She should have used a few hundred dollars for anger management classes or a few dollars for chill pills. It seems that she was still holding a grudge against her lawyer husband for buying his girlfriend a really big rock. She didn't just complain to her BFF, she told the press.
The judge in the case found that Janice Schacter had sullied the reputation of her husband, Ira:
“Her repeated attacks against him have played a part in diminishing his income,” Judge Drager found.
The bad press resulted in Ira becoming “an involuntary contestant for the negative award for Lawyer of the Month” on the website Above the Law, Drager noted.
The New York Post reported that the judge also noted:
“This acrimonious divorce action presented one of the most contentious litigations this court has ever presided over,” Justice Drager ruled, noting that each side shouted during proceedings and even “ran out of the courtroom in the middle” of hearings.
