Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned

This should worry women out there fooling around with married men.

A woman in North Carolina was just awarded $9M by her husband’s mistress. Under North Carolina law, a spouse can sue a third party for “alienation of affection,” if it’s believed that that individual caused the break-up of a marriage.  A jury awarded her $5 million in compensatory damages and $4 million in punitive damages to be paid by the mistress.

“She set her sights on him. … She knew he was married,” Shackelford said of Lundquist. “You don’t go after married men and break up families.” Right on sister!

It’s a shame Michelle Lee, Sandra Bullock and Jesse James aren’t from North Carolina. That’d be a fun case to follow.
