James Dondero, co-founder and president of the $18-billion asset manager Highland Capital Management, is currently in the negotiating stage of his two-year divorce battle.
Dondero’s legal team argued that Becky, his 33-year-old ex-wife, shouldn’t be eligible to receive any money from the prenuptial agreement. His lawyers claimed that Becky breached the prenuptial contract by stating in a pre-trial hearing that she wanted more money than the previously agreed upon $5 million.
Michael Rubin, a lawyer who analyzed the case, said the jury might agree with the legal technicalities presented by Dondero’s attorneys. However, Rubin predicted that the jury would still likely rule in favor of Becky by awarding her money.
