Justice-elect to divorce

A divorce action was filed Monday in Washington Circuit Court to end the 14-year marriage of Mark Henry and Arkansas Court of Appeals Judge Courtney Henry, recently elected to the Arkansas Supreme Court. Mark Henry is the plaintiff in the divorce suit. I don't have a copy of the filing, but the judge said it cites the boilerplate general indignities language often used in divorce suits. Judge Henry said all issues in the case had been worked out. She said the agreement, yet to be ratified in court, is that she and Mark Henry will have joint custody of their three children, aged 5 to 10. She will maintain a residence in Fayetteville.

Judge Henry won her Supreme Court race in part on the strength of a TV advertising campaign that mentioned her adoption by the man her divorced mother married. She said Tuesday, "It's unfortunate, but so many Arkansas families suffer from broken homes and none of us are immune from that." She added, "It's a trying time."

The case was assigned to Judge Mark Lindsey.
