The ex-wife of Dick Wolf, creator of “Law and Order”, claims she was swindled out of tens of millions of dollars, according to a New York Family Lawyer. An attorney for the business management company contends that the case not only “lacks merit”, but that it “intends to contest [the ex-wife’s] latest filing in Los Angeles Superior Court.”
Wolf’s ex-wife filed a suit of fraud and breach of fiduciary duty, according to a New York Family Lawyer. It is her claim that the company sided with her ex-husband in their heated divorce proceedings of 2002. She claims her advisers did not tell her that the company she shared with her husband would continue to earn money for “Law and Order” and its spinoffs. If a decision is made for Wolf’s ex-wife, they could owe her millions.
In addition, she claims the company’s worth was not correctly stated to her and it is worth a lot more than she was told. She informed a New York Family Lawyer that she was told she’d only make about $8 million more from the show. This is not even “remotely close” to what the franchise has generated, she says.
Dick Wolf himself is not a defendant in this case. They were divorced in 2005, after 22 years of marriage.
