Report: NJ woman sued for writing 'bum' and 'loser' on ex-husband's alimony checks

A New Jersey woman is being sued for writing "bum" and "loser" in the memo line of alimony checks addressed to her ex-spouse, the Daily Record reported Saturday.

Diane Wagner, 57, of Hopatcong, was sued Thursday in Morristown Superior Court after ignoring a demand from her former husband's lawyer to stop, according to the Daily Record.

Francis Wagner, 61, of Denville, N.J., is seeking unspecified damages for infliction of emotional distress and harassment. He claims the memo line insults have exacerbated his poor health which includes cancer and a bad heart.

She pays him $186 a week in alimony and has been doing so since their divorce was finalized last year. His only income are Social Security disability payments. The alimony runs until 2020, according to the paper.
