I’ll give you a chance to re-read the headline, because it doesn’t seem probable: Woman tries to sue attorney because they didn’t inform her that her divorce would cause her marriage to end. England’s The Independent is reporting on Jane Mulcahy, a British woman who, again, wanted to sue her divorce attorneys because she is no longer married.
Ms. Mulcahy was arguing that her lawyers did not make it clear to her that divorcing her now ex-husband would cause the marriage to be terminated. The Daily Mail writes that she now thinks they should have suggested “judicial separation,” which they describe as a “step away from full divorce.” Mulcahy alleged that her Roman Catholic faith was disregarded as this all happened.
Lord Justice Michael Briggs dismissed the case, and then the appeal as well. There was no word on what Mr. Mulcahy had to say on the matter.
