Legal Wit — Moderately Controlled Bedlam

Legal Wit — Moderately Controlled Bedlam

In the midst of legal proceedings respecting the division of family property, how the petitioner thought breaking and entering his estranged wife's home and removing a raft of chattels would assist the parties in reaching a property resolution is uncertain. What is certain is that it was inexplicable egregious conduct that cannot be left unanswered. The petitioner's actions conjure up the old adage, "everybody is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege".

It goes without saying that if the court is seen to tolerate such an action, then family law disputes would soon descend into absolute chaos (as opposed to moderately controlled bedlam).
