WASHINGTON - A few words on behalf of Dixie Shanahan. Granted, some might consider her a less-than-sympathetic figure. After all, two years ago, Mrs. Shanahan, a 36-year-old from Defiance, Iowa, killed her husband with a shotgun blast to the head. She left his body decomposing on the bed for a year. But there is, as you might expect, more to the story. Mrs. Shanahan, backed up by friends, police reports and photographs of her own blackened eyes, testified that her husband, Scott, beat her repeatedly for years.

Paula is an intelligent, ambitious, high-energy public relations expert who loves her work and has fairly skipped up her company's promotion ladder because, she says, "I'm good at what I do.

Maryland's highest court will take up today The Case of The Crumbled Marriage, a divorce case so strange and steamy that names of the participants have been hidden in court papers as "Doe v. Doe."For the first time, the Court of Appeals will consider whether a cuckolded husband can sue his wife for fraud and distress for lying to him about the paternity of "their" children.A lot of money is at stake. In a divorce, spouses divide up only the property acquired during their marriage. But in a civil matter alleging harm, a spouse can go after all the other person's assets.
