Jeff Bezos wanted to setup second HQ in New York and then move there for a year before divorcing his wife. Tabloid broke the plan by revealing his affair. Now, he does not have a good reason to move to New York. So, HQ 2 is being reconsidered.

    If true, this would be grounds to sue him for violating his fiduciary duty to shareholders

      He would be working there and if that could have saved 70 billion dollars, it would have been worth it.

      I don't think having 70b or 140b makes any difference. He is super rich anyway. He could spend 1m every day for the rest of his life even after the cut

    That’s dumb. Just because he is a resident of that state, doesn’t make her one. Then they’d have to deal with divorce laws of both states....and New York is a bear. There is no fast divorce there—waiting period upwards of 12-18 months.... and in a long term marriage. It doesn’t matter where you live

      It has English law and not community property law. That makes a difference in terms of splitting the assets.
