7th Circuit Court of Appeals
In May 2013 a Wisconsin Court determined that Trentadue committed “signiﬁcant over‐trial” and ordered that he contribute $25,000 toward his ex‐wife’s Attorneys’ fees. In support of its ﬁnding the Court noted that “Trentadue’s desire to ‘win’ resulted in additional legal fees for his ex‐wife” and directed Trentadue to make payments directly to his ex‐wife’s lawyer. Trentadue appealed the ruling to the Wisconsin Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals agreed with the Trial Court, and the Supreme Court of Wisconsin denied a further appeal.
