Ex-Edwards Aide Andrew Young Says Elizabeth Edwards May Sue Him
The saga continues, as former aide Andrew Young says Elizabeth Edwards is threatening to sue him for the downfall of their marriage.
Andrew Young said Wednesday that Elizabeth Edwards has threatened an “alienation of affection” lawsuit. Young said he had anticipated that the Edwards family would come after him following his book about the candidate’s affair.
An alienation of affection lawsuit allows a person to sue a third party for contributing to the breakup of a marriage. Jilted spouses typically seek money from their partner’s lover.
North Carolina is one of only about a half-dozen states that still have such a law.
There has been no comment from Elizabeth Edwards on this. But, whatever Andrew Young did, if anyone is to blame for the dissolution of this marriage, wouldn’t that be someone who cheated on his wife, with whom he had a child he denied was his?Click here for reuse options!
