Oklahoma oil magnate to pay over $995M in divorce settlement

A Reuters article on November 10 stated that Continental Resources CEO Harold Hamm was ordered to pay his estranged wife a $995.5 million settlement in their divorce.
The settlement was recently ordered by Oklahoma Special Judge Howard Haralson. Sue Ann Hamm, who was a former executive of Continental Resources, had a significant role in the company’s massive growth. Before the year ends Harold will need to settle over $322 million to Sue Ann. The remaining settlement worth $650 million will be paid through monthly installments. Aside from the settlement millions worth of properties were already awarded to Sue Ann when the case was filed two years ago. The estranged couple did not have a prenuptial agreement when they got married in 1988.

Dennis Quaid and wife file for divorce

Earlier today it was announced that Dennis Quaid’s third wife, Kimberly Buffington-Quaid, has filed for divorce after nearly eight years of marriage.

Buffington-Quaid says that a conflict of personalities has destroyed their marriage and promises no possibility of reconciliation. She is asking for spousal support and attorney’s fees. A temporary custody order suggests that both parents plan to share custody of their twins, who heralded national attention after they nearly died of an overdose shortly after birth.

The temporary order states that Buffington-Quaid will have possession of the couple’s main residence and Mercedes. Quaid will get the condo and Cadillac Escalade. She is asking for an even split of their assets, but reports say Quaid doesn’t want her to get anything.

Shooting between agents at the California Immigration and Customs Enforcement office

Last Thursday evening, a California Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer, Ezequiel Garcia, shot Kevin Kozak, his superior officer, six times.

“We are doing everything humanly possible to understand why it happened and ensure it will not happen again,” said Special Agent in Charge, Claude Arnold.

California’s gay marriage ban is ruled unconstitutional

On Tuesday morning, the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled that Proposition 8, the ban on gay marriage in the state of California, is unconstitutional.

Proposition 8 was a voter-mandated ban on gay marriage that came into effect in November of 2008.  Tuesday’s historic decision was made by 2-1 vote of justices in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.  The panel stated that the gay marriage ban in California “used the state’s initiative power to target a minority group and take away a right the group possessed, without legitimate reason.”

Judge Stephen Reinhardt, who was appointed by former President Jimmy Carter, stated, ”Proposition 8 serves no purpose, and has no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California, and to officially reclassify their relationships and families as inferior to those of opposite-sex couples.”

Same-sex marriage opponents will most likely appeal this decision, and it is unclear whether they will decide to try the case in front of the same court with a 14 judge panel or move directly to the Supreme Court.

Klum and Seal separate

Singer Seal and his supermodel wife, Heidi Klum, have announced their separation.

Much to the surprise of their friends and to the public, Heidi Klum and Seal have separated after seven years of marriage.  Seal visited the “Ellen DeGeneres” and “Tavis Smiley” shows over the past few days to promote his new album, Soul 2, and made statements about the couple’s split.  Seal said, “She is still, in my opinion, the most wonderful woman in the world…I think our priority was to remain civil and do this thing with dignity. We still very much love each other.”

It is clear that this will not be an ugly Hollywood divorce.  The couple has four children, and though Seal has made statements about the situation, there is not a clear reason for the split.
