McCartney's divorce drags on

A judge has allotted extra time for their case, which was scheduled to end Friday. It will continue today. McCartney and Mills separated in 2006 after four years of marriage. Details of their divorce proceedings have been kept quiet, since the case is being heard in private and no journalists are allowed.

After the hearing ends, the judge is expected to take several weeks to consider the settlement. The terms will not become public unless it is challenged in appeals court or either of the parties chooses to reveal details.

Media reports say McCartney has offered Mills about 50 million dollars and she is seeking at least twice that.
