Marie Douglas-David: ‘$43 million is not enough’


Former United Technologies Corp. president George David and his wife, Swedish countess Marie Douglas-David, head to court Wednesday, bringing their increasingly vicious divorce out in the open.

According to the Hartford Courant, the couple signed a post-nuptial agreement four years ago that would give Douglas-David $43 million when the couple divorces. They were married in 2002.

The 67-year-old businessman wants the court to uphold the agreement but the 36-year-old countess says the money isn’t enough to maintain her living expenses. She is seeking additional money, real estate and jewelry.

David’s attorneys include retired Connecticut Appellate Court Judge Anne C. Dranginis and Dara Goings.

Douglas-David’s attorneys include Hartford-lawyer Bruce Louden and high profile New York City divorce lawyer William Beslow whose celebrity clients have included Christie Brinkley, Tatum O’Neal and Marla Maples.
