In Re Marriage of Valli (Cal. Ct. App. - May 18, 2011)

The setup was so sweet.  The case involves the divorce of Frankie and Randy Valli.  That's right, that Franie Valli.  The question is who gets a $3.75 million life insurance policy on Frankie's life; the husband or wife.

Yet, to the credit of Justice Mosk, there's no a single reference in the opinion to Frankie Valli, his music, or even his occupation.  It's just another case.

Particularly since Randy wins, who could resist saying something like:  "Big Girls Don't Cry.  Especially not Frankie Valli's wife, since we now reverse the judgment of the trial court and award her a million-dollar insurance policy."

Certainly not me.
