According to The Times Law Report of 4 October it is perfectly reasonable for an English court to grant a decree absolute of divorce to the wife where the husband was waiting for an appeal to be heard in France by the Cour de Cassation on whether the Cour d'Appel de Paris had been correct in holding that the English court had been seised first. The Court of Appeal in Leman-Klammers v Klammers dismissed on 12 July an appeal brought by the husband from the refusal by Mrs Justice Baron on 18 May to give the husband a stay of the grant of the decree absolute granted to the wife.
