A billionaire who was forced to pay £337million to his wife in Britain’s biggest ever divorce payout is back in the High Court again with his ex-spouse over the children’s charity they set up.
Sir Chris Hohn and Jamie Cooper are in a dispute over the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation they founded together in 2002.
The dispute focuses on whether the foundation should make a grant of more than £270million to a similar charity, Big Win Philanthropy, set up by Ms Cooper after the divorce.
Five Supreme Court justices began analysing the case at a Supreme Court hearing in London after Ms Cooper asked judges to overturn a previous Court of Appeal ruling.
Sir Hohn and Ms Cooper divorced in 2014 when he was ordered to hand over £337 million to his wife after a trial in the Family Division of the High Court.
