Roll on no fault divorce

A timely reminder of why the advent of no fault divorce cannot come quickly enough.  A firm who had adopted a 'sausage factory' approach to their drafting has seen 28 petitions thrown out.  An observant district judge spotted the identical documents and referred them all to the High Court.  All 28 were summarily dismissed.

family court judge has dismissed 28 divorce petitions from the same company after a finding that particulars of behaviour were ‘absolutely identical’ to each other.
