A Ligonier lawyer's lawsuit claiming his estranged wife married him as a ruse to abscond with part of his family's wealth doesn't belong in federal court, a judge ruled Friday.
J. Russell McGregor Jr., 51, of Ligonier claimed in a federal lawsuit filed Wednesday that his wife, Jacqueline McGregor, 51, filed for divorce earlier this month as part of a five-year scheme with her ex-husband to grab some of Russell McGregor's money.
U.S. District Judge Nora Barry Fischer dismissed the case since husband and wife live in Pennsylvania and Russell McGregor, who is representing himself in the lawsuit, didn't specify any federal law that has allegedly been violated.
Russell McGregor is the son of the late Common Pleas Judge James R. McGregor Sr., who served 30 years on the bench. Neither of the McGregors could be reached for comment.There are currently no comments for this story.
