Some people going through divorce will find anything to argue about. Stephen Benson, a 64 year old investment banker, settled his divorce with his wife of three years, Kim Charlton, 56, a former model. He agreed to pay her $365,000.
But when she removed a $150 copper weather vane from the top of their $4 million mansion, he claimed she damaged the house and refused to pay her until she returned it.
Charlton lugged the bulky weather vane to court as Exhibit A. She pointed out the four screws she hired a worker to detach.
The Judge ordered Benson to pay the $365,000 immediately and let Charlton keep the weather vane.
