In a suit that could create a new marital tort in New Jersey, a noncustodial millionaire-developer father is suing his children's mother for alienation of their affection for him and seeking recovery for psychological damages. New Jersey has no legal precedent for an alienation-of-affection suit by one parent against the other, but the state has allowed other interspousal tort actions. The plaintiff accuses his former common-law wife of moving and cutting off all of his contact with their two children.
