London, Jan. 12: A British woman has attempted to sue her former lawyers for professional negligence, claiming that they failed to tell her that finalizing her divorce proceedings would end her marriage.
The case – made against two solicitor firms – had been rejected by the court.
Jane Mulcahy had claimed that the lawyers should have told her that a divorce would cause the termination of her marriage – something that she apparently wanted to avoid, the Independent reported.
She said that her lawyers failed to regard her Roman Catholic faith, and should have recommended judicial separation – a step below divorce – as an alternative. (ANI)
