Judge Shows Investment Savvy

by Mr Juggles

From the NYPost:

September 28, 2005 — AMERICA’S first black female billionaire just got remarried. Sheila Johnson, the ex-wife of BET founder Robert Johnson, tied the knot with Judge William Newman at her Salamander Farm in Middleburg, Va., on Saturday. Newman met Johnson when he presided over her 2002 divorce case against Robert, her husband of 33 years. Newman’s decision evenly split the $3 billion Johnson netted after Viacom bought BET.

I have to give credit where it’s due. This judge ruled over a divorce case involving a billionaire, split the $3bn evenly, and then marries the now-divorced-but-also-a-billionaire woman? Wow. That’s how you use the law to your investing benefit.
