Should the court order UTC's George David to pay for his wife Marie Douglas's attorney's fees in their divorce action?

So, I’m sitting there in church tonight, at Midnight Mass,  listening to a tenor belt out Jesu Bambino, and instead of being fully engrossed in this, one of the most holiest feasts of my religious faith – the celebration of the Nativity of Christ – all I could think about was getting back home so that I could blog about whether or not Countess Marie Douglas deserved attorney’s fees in her divorce against UTC’s board Chairman George David.
I could scarcely wait to get to my computer. I knew as soon as I got back, I would post about the attorneys fees situation – even if I got home at 3:00 in the morning. So here goes: Should Marie get attorneys fees, on top of the $978,000 check George wrote her to tide her over while the divorce is pending? Normally, in New York, the court would make a separate order for attorney’s fees even though an order was made for spousal support during the pendency of the divorce litigation. Sometimes, the court even orders the monied spouse to pay the non-monied spouse’s lawyers directly. In these high profile, high net worth cases, attorney’s fees are usually ordered as a matter of routine. The idea is one of equity. You can’t have the monied spouse being able to afford top notch counsel from some of the most established law firms in the country (who can pelt the non-monied spouse with so many demands for discovery, inspection and the whole nine) yet leave the non-monied spouse with no choice but to get an attorney from Legal Aid (not that there are not competent lawyers at Legal Aid, there are, but still) or pay some kid fresh out of law school $100 an hour to basically phock up the case.
No, the courts routinely award attorneys fees to prevent a miscarriage of justice in these types of divorces. Sure, Marie just got a million dollar check from George and even if the lawyers cost her $100,000 she should be able to afford it. But my hunch is, she will get attorneys fees on top of the award for spousal support. I think George will be ordered to pay them directly. 
Okay. Now that I got that out of my system, I should go wrap presents and have a little egg nog. It is terrible that I am so obsessed with writing on this blog. It’s starting to take over my life! I mean, Midnight Mass is a tradition and I sat there half the time counting the minutes that I could return to my blog. Not that I didn’t enjoy the occasion, don’t misunderstand. I belted out carols like I was still a kid (love carols) taking particular joy with my old favorites “Oh Come All Ye Faithful,” “Joy to the World” and “Away in a Manger.” But I was definitely thinking of Divorce Saloon in general, and the Davids in particular. And Marie’s demand for lawyer’s fees specifically.
I am sure her lawyers are charging her at least $500 per hour.  They are going to make a killing on this one. For sure.
