Russian Billionaire Rybolovlev Must Face Ex-Wife’s Suit

Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev lost a bid to throw out his ex-wife’s lawsuit over the $88 million purchase of a New York City penthouse bordering Central Park.

New York State Supreme Court Justice Milton A. Tingling in Manhattan denied Rybolovlev’s request to dismiss the suit, saying the billionaire didn’t prove New York wasn’t the proper place for the trial. Tingling, in an order made public today, also granted a request by the ex-wife, Elena Rybolovleva, to have her former husband questioned under oath.
