I get a 404 message, so I can’t find out, but if anyone has a statement as to what she thought finalizing divorce procedures would do, enquiring minds want to know.

The article said she was Roman Catholic and argued that the lawyers should have taken that into account and advised her to seek a judicial separation instead of a full divorce.

The courts have rejected her argument at least twice, including rejection by an Appeals Court.
