What are the oddest divorce cases you’ve seen?
I haven’t encountered anything all that odd, but the most tragicomic case I encountered was one I encountered in my first year as a lawyer: I was involved in a settlement conference in which the couple had agreed upon everything from child custody and support to division of the house and other marital assets, division of debt, alimony, everything. But when it came to who got the Scarlet O’Hare collector’s edition Barbie doll, the whole settlement fell apart. I even offered to buy my client, out of my own pocket, his (yes, I represented the husband) own doll, so that he and his wife would both end up with one, but he refused. It was the original Scarlet O’Hare collector’s edition Barbie doll or nothing. His wife felt the same way.
