Alienation of Affection? Not in Indiana but Still in Illinois

Earlier this year, Bob Rohrman made news for suing for alienation of affection. Since Bob Rohrman Sues Doc For Stealing Wife, I have not found anythning new. For those missing the story, here goes:

Reading e-mails between his wife and the plastic surgeon who worked on his wife's daughter, he learned of the affair, he said. He filed for divorce but then got back together with her for several months -- until he spotted new e-mails.

"He had kind of stolen her again. I don't know how he did it," Rohrman said.

This time she filed for divorce against him. Rohrman responded with his "alienation of affection" suit last week in DuPage County Circuit Court.

These kinds of lawsuits are rare -- and rarely succeed. Critics say they serve as a tool to harass estranged spouses' new loves. But Rohrman's attorney, Enrico J. Mirabelli, said they have a place.
