Abstract:     
In United States v. Gilmore, the U.S. Supreme Court held that Mr. Gilmore's legal expenses pursuant to his divorce were nondeductible. The opinion mentioned in passing the wife's sensational and reputation-damaging charges of marital infidelity. The California Appellate Court noted that the case was ... one of the most sordid and revolting with which courts are required to deal. This article describes the Gilmore divorce in state court, with help from the breathless coverage of the San Francisco Chronicle.
