Why an Indiana Divorce beats a New York Divorce

No jury trial in Indiana. In New York, a jury can decide a divorce case. Also, New York differs from Indiana by requiring proof of certain grounds before a divorce can be granted by judge or jury. Now for what started all this - a story from The New York Post:

But in keeping them married, the six-member jury rejected Chana's stated grounds for divorce, that Simon had subjected her to "cruel and inhuman treatment."
I can imagine our local judges' reaction to a 10 day jury trial in a divorce. It would not be a good one. Not sure any of my clients want 6 people off the street deciding their divorce case.
