Ricardo Tosto; the self-described expert Brazilian lawyer, recently argued successfully for his client in the Brazilian Superior Court on a matter of marital property and two divorces. The ace legal attorney was seeking a cessation of the judgment from a lower court. That case was a first for the world and the brilliant lawyer who argued successfully for his client.
The plaintiff, although not being the legal partner of Ricardo Tosto’s client had filed for divorce and was seeking a share of his client’s property on the basis of having had a stable union. Conversely, his client was in the process of annulling a previous legal union and was of the opinion that the plaintiff did not have a right to his property as they were not legally married.
The Superior court stated that since the plaintiff was not officially married, they did not have a right to the defendant’s property. The court also noted that the defendants’ legally recognized partner was not included in the proceedings and was also an owner of the property being litigated upon. Ricardo Tosto also argued that since his client’s previous relationship was not legally annulled, the existence of another union was not admissible.
