On Wednesday 5th December, The Times printed the above article. The Court made an Order in relation to Divorce and Financial Proceedings for Richard Rothschild, a wealthy entrepreneur, to vacate one of the matrimonial assets; Miami beach house. Mr Justice Mostyn told Mr Rothschild that ‘Vacate possession means you vacate it. This is a fatal attack on the administration of the justice system and cannot be tolerated’. If Mr Rothschild does not vacate the property in one weeks’ time, the Court has warned him he will be sent to prison.

This case shows the importance of complying with Court Orders and the power the Court has when Orders have been breached.
