Caught in a brutal divorce, Catherine Kassenoff committed medically assisted suicide. Then the campaign to destroy her ex-husband truly began.

I'm not done with the story, but I will say that from my limited knowledge via a family member who worked with family court in NY a LOT - certainly in our area the courts were biased in the opposite direction against fathers. Mothers were the default selection and it surprises me to see the idea that family court is biased against mothers. It also doesn't fit with "the common belief" from the culture, but who knows how right any of that is.

It was usually the case that whoever lost in court claimed it was corrupt, biased, and needed reform. This may just be sour grapes at losing no matter what the reality was.

They were both lawyers:
Catherine Youssef met Allan Kassenoff in New York City in 2005. He was an upstart, 33-year-old patent litigator; she was an associate at his law firm, four years his senior, and had already served as an assistant U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York.​
