Florida readers may be interested in a story out of Washington, D.C., concerning one couple who has decided to end their marriage. The husband and wife, both high-profile lobbyists, are now fighting a legal battle over ownership and control of their art collection.
Tony and Heather Podesta initially separated in October 2012, but the couple has now decided to make the divorce official. He recently filed divorce papers in D.C. Superior Court, and she filed a counterclaim soon after. One of the more contentious issues in the proceedings is the control of the couple's collection of artwork. With his claimed history of supporting the arts and donating pieces to museums, he is claiming that Heather has attempted to block these donations. Heather is seeking to enjoin Tony from any further donations without the written consent of both spouses.
