Notable quote #1
Proceedings between former spouses, in this court, are frequently conducted against a background of heightened emotion and some heat. This is because they invariably deal with private and sensitive matters, arising between parties who would have no occasion to embark upon litigation, other than for the breakdown of the marriage or relationship between them. For this reason, they cannot be regarded as being analogous to commercial proceedings or other general civil litigation. –
Federal Magistrate Brown in Meldrum v Dodge.
