Michael Moore, familiar to Colorado movie fans as the director of such satirical documentaries as "Roger and Me", plans to bring two high-powered executives into the courtroom as witnesses in his divorce litigation from his wife of 23 years, Kathleen Glynn. Glynn was a producer of several of Moore's documentaries. Ari Emanuel is Moore's film agent and Mort Janklow is the literary agent for several of Moore's books, including 'Stupid White Men" and 'Downsize This! Random Threats from an Unarmed American." The two men can give testimony as to Moore's earnings, and it is speculated they will testify favorably against Glynn in the high asset divorce proceedings in recounting how she damaged Moore's reputation squandering millions of dollars in marital assets by building an expensive vacation home.
Tens of millions of dollars in marital property assets are at stake in the high-profile couple's divorce and Emanuel and Janklow are expected to testify Moore was mocked as a result of Glynn building what has been dubbed 'Moore's $2M hypocrite house." Moore's popularity and reputation were built on his support of such anti-establishment causes as Occupy Wall Street.
The division of marital property in high-asset divorce proceedings involves complex asset valuations. In the case of this high-profile couple, considerable business assets were amassed over an extended marriage period. Reaching a decision will take into account a number of issues, such as property interests, retirement plans and future asset valuation.
As Michigan is an equitable distribution state, divorce courts will divide marital property in a manner which is deemed "fair". As "fair" does not necessarily mean equal, attorneys for the divorcing parties may try to negotiate an agreement that would take the decision out of the judge's hands.
