It appears that Michael Douglas' ex-wife was not discouraged by last November's dismissal. In fact, Diandra Douglas has just re-ignited her bid to get half of Michael's earnings from the 2010 film, 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.'
The Associated Press is reporting that lawyers for both Michael and ex-wife Diandra met Monday in a New York courthouse to reconsider the judge's previous decision to have the case heard in California, where the divorce had originally taken place. Michael did not appear in court, however The AP details that lawyers for both camps were at it in quite a nasty way.
A lawyer for Michael felt Diandra "should be ashamed of herself" for attempting to seek even more cash when she has already received over $51 million. In Diandra's defense, her lawyers were quick to point out Michael recently purchased a $5+ million dollar home near New York. Outside court, Diandra complained of the "mudslinging" she believes was directed her way.
