This is just idiotic. Sorry that your husband cheated with another woman, however, that doesn't entitle you to $9 million.
There are two things about this case which I find mildly amusing that the article doesnt point out or doesn't expand on.
(1) From the way it was reported locally, she got the $9M because the defendant failed to appear for the trial despite being served a summons.
(2) I think its interesting that the law is still on the books. Its a very antiquated law thats based on the idea that people are property and interfering with property can get you sued.
Surely I would think such a ridiculous amount would be overturned but you never know with appeals especially given she didnt show up for the original court date.
*shrug* More power to her. The "other" person always seems to come out of these things without a scratch.... (Of course, hearing this lawsuit is a flagrant waste of taxpayer money).
