LANDMARK CASES

Dowd v. Dowd – Despite being aware of his alimony obligations under the separation agreement, the husband failed to comply with those obligations using a creative but meritless interpretation of the agreement. An award of interest and counsel fees was proper.

Tanzman v. Meurer – A trial court that predicates a financial support order on a party’s earning capacity must determine the specific dollar amount of the party’s earning capacity.

Powell-Ferri v. Ferri – Pursuant to Massachusetts law, it was proper for trustees to move funds from one trust that permitted the party husband to withdraw principal to a second trust from which he could not withdraw principal. The husband was not required by the automatic orders to sue his family member trustees for return of the funds.
