Sharon’s brief

Samuel’s rebuttal brief

Apparently after the divorce, the wife’s mother died leaving a sizable estate to be divided among her heirs including Sharon (the parties aren’t sure of the size of the inheritance or even how much, if any, cash there is). The husband moved to terminate alimony on this basis. He also asked for child support after the son moved out of his mother’s house and into the father’s.

The panel consists of Justices Lee, Ishee and James.
