THE ECCENTRICITIES of litigants are proverbial, but there can seldom have occurred a more striking instance than the proceedings of the petitioner in Halpin v. Boddington, which came before Sir James Hanxen last Tuesday. Having presented a petition for restitution of conjugal rights, which her husband answered by asking for a judicial separation on theground of cruelty, she altered her mind, amended her pleadings, and asked for a delaration of nullity of marriage. The case being heard in camerâ, the respondent offered no opposition to the decree asked for, and did not proceed with his case as to cruelty. A decree nisi was accordingly pronounced, but at the expiration of six months the petitioner again altered her mind, and instead of applying for a decree absolute, moved to dismiss the petition. This was of course strenuously opposed by the respondent, who had withdrawn his case of cruelty after the amendment of the petition; and ultimately Sir JAMES HANNEN held that the circumstances of the case were so suspicious that the papers must be laid before the Queen's Proctor.
