Brooklyn Jury denies a fault divorce

Many comments have basically said "Only in New York". But in Northern Virginia, where I practice, fault divorces (like the Taub case) are often dismissed, and some judges often dismiss no-fault divorces because the plaintiff cannot prove one year's separation or six months' in-state residency, as required by the divorce statutes.

Cases like this would be reduced if they would increase waiting periods for fault divorces, and reduce and simplify them for collaborative mutual-consent divorces with complete separation agreements.
