Wilson L.J. in Jones v Jones  EWCA Civ 41:
‘The judge released his judgment for publication but on an anonymised basis, i.e. as J v. J. Its citation number is  EWHC 2654. It has 484 paragraphs. An article on the judgment, by Mr Ashley Murray of counsel, has recently been published in  Family Law, Vol 40, at 1111. Mr Murray introduced his article as follows:
“There are certain challenges each of us should attempt in our lifetime and for most these involve a particular jump, a mountain climb, etc. Akin to these in the legal world would be reading from first to last a judgment of Charles J. One of his most recent is J v. J …”
Mr Murray’s introductory sentences were witty and brave. In respect at any rate of the judgment in the present case, they were also, I am sorry to say, apposite…’
The appeal was concerned with two questions (1) how the sharing principle in ancillary relief is to be applied when the husband’s assets are the proceeds of sale of a company he bought into the marriage and built up during the currency of the marriage and (2) did the need principle, where it suggested an award lower than generated by the sharing principle, inform or dictate the extent of the departure from equality within the sharing principle.
Along the way, the Court of Appeal found a way to cite, consider and disagree with the recent decision of the Court of Final Appeal in WLK v TMC, Unreported, 12 Nov. 2010, FACV 21/2009.
