Judge to give McCartney-Mills divorce ruling on March 17

Judge to give McCartney-Mills divorce ruling on March 17

A British judge will give the financial terms of Paul McCartney and Heather Mills' divorce settlement on March 17.
The Judicial Communications Office said judge Hugh Bennett would deliver his ruling to the couple and their lawyers during a private court hearing.
He will then decide, after hearing from the couple's lawyers, whether to make any of the ruling public.
In Britain, divorce cases are heard behind closed doors, but the secrecy has only spurred speculation about the possible size of a financial settlement in the most publicized celebrity divorce case for years.
Mills and McCartney separated in 2006 after four years of marriage. They spent six days in court this month trying _ and failing _ to decide on Mills' share of the former Beatle's fortune, estimated at up to 825 million pounds (US$1.6 billion, euro1.1 billion).
Media reports have suggested McCartney offered his wife around 25 million pounds (US$50 million; euro34 million) and that she was seeking at least double that amount.
