Larceny, allegedly

Personally, I can't see anything wrong with stealing money to pay your divorce lawyers, but Divorce Saloon reports that in New York Guy Albert de Chimay has been charged with larceny and forgery in connection with an alleged investment fraud in which nearly $600,000 in investor funds were diverted to pay his divorce lawyers. Let us just hope that the poor lawyers are not required to return the money...

  1. Ironic that you illustrate this blog with an Edward G. Robinson poster as if you look up his biography you'll see he suffered a particularly bad divorce settlement (from his point of view) - but then he didn't have you and your colleagues to advise him.
