No Kidney-ing Around
January 8, 2009
In 2001 a Long Island surgeon donated one of his kidneys to his wife. The couple is now embroiled in a nasty divorce. The case has degenerated into a real pissing match, with the husband now demanding the return of his kidney. In the alternative, he will accept $1.5 million. The wife's attorney, admirably keeping his focus on the precise legal issue at hand, responded that kidneys are not marital property.
