Well, it's all business...

It may be a missed opportunity for divorce lawyers, but at least it's providing work for a civil litigator. In Malaysia a man is suing his former fiancée for more than $360,000 (£219,000) for leaving him six hours before their wedding, according to this report in the Guardian today. The report says that:
"Lawyer Latifah Ariffin said Masran Abdul Rahman, 32, and his family were distressed and embarrassed when Norzuliyana Mat Hassan called off their June wedding at the last minute.

"Latifah says Masran invited 1,200 guests to the reception and was seeking compensation for damages and defamation from Norzuliyana and her father."

What prospects such an action has of success, I have no idea. Still, the main thing is that the lawyers are kept in work...

  1. Maybe not quite, but isn't the lawyer's name an anagram of you're having a laugh?

  2. possibly call his lawyer, but not until he's called his barber
