Associated Press Release

CINCINNATI (AP) -- A 17-year legal fight between two law professors over their divorce and continuing disputes has drawn criticism from judges in Ohio who say the pair set a bad example.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/13dQDl8 ) reports that the feud has lasted seven years longer than the couple's 10-year-marriage and included fights over custody of their children.

Judges hearing the case complained the professors broke rules or abused the system. One said the pair should be ashamed and called it "frightening" that they teach law students.

University of Cincinnati professor Christo Lassiter questions how judges managed cases between him and his ex-wife. He says he was trying to be a good parent.

The newspaper says his ex-wife, Sharlene Boltz, teaches at Northern Kentucky University and didn't return calls and emails seeking comment.
