Mordashov?€™s Ex-Wife Sues

Severstal billionaire Alexei Mordashov’s ex-wife is seeking $500 million at the European Court of Human Rights because a judge in the steelmaker’s hometown ordered her to pay $7.2 million for challenging their divorce agreement.

The court will rule on the case that Yelena Novitskaya filed “as soon as practically possible,” said Stefano Piedimonte, a spokesman for the court.

The court agreed to hear the case in 2008, and the last documents were submitted in December, said Elena Krotova, the lead lawyer for Novitskaya at Egorov, Puginsky, Afanasiev & Partners.
