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.

This article describes the Gilmore divorce in state court, with help from the breathless coverage of the San Francisco Chronicle.
