No divorce deal for McCartney

February 19, 2008 7:39:37 AM PST
It's up to a judge now to decide how to split up the assets from the marriage of Paul McCartney and Heather Mills. Judge Hugh Bennett will spend several weeks working out a settlement, since the couple's divorce hearing ended without a deal. McCartney's fortune is estimated at 1.6 billion dollars. He and Mills separated in 2006 after four years of marriage. Divorce proceedings in England are heard in private and few details have emerged from the courtroom.

The public won't find out what the settlement is unless one of the parties chooses to reveal the details or the decision is challenged in appeals court.
