A woman has sued her lawyers on the grounds that they failed to advise her that getting divorced would mean ending her marriage.

Jane Mulcahy, who sued her lawyers on a number of counts, is a committed Catholic. She claimed that her lawyers should have known this, and should have advised her that a divorce would mean terminating her marriage. Apparently this hadn't occurred to her.

Lord Justice Briggs described her inevitably unsuccessful claim as "striking".

It doesn't end her marriage in the eyes of god so if she keeps herself to herself everything should be fine.

Permission to appeal this point was refused last year. Why is this now news?

Although at first glace this is obvious, the family solicitor was negligent in not considering the option of judicial separation which would have been more suitable in this case.
