    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 doesn’t 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 it’s interesting that the law is still on the books. It’s a very antiquated law that’s 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 didn’t 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).
