NEW YORK (AP) - The clash between Michael Douglas and his ex-wife over his “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” earnings is back for another, nastier run in a New York court.

Diandra Douglas is seeking half the Academy Award-winning actor’s take from the 2010 movie. Her camp pressed a judge Tuesday to reconsider his view that the case belongs in California. The couple divorced there in 2000 after 23 years together.

Lawyers for both sides traded barbs in court. The actor wasn’t there.

Michael Douglas‘ lawyer says her client’s ex “should be ashamed of herself” for seeking more when she’s gotten more than $51 million.

Her lawyers, meanwhile, mentioned his recent purchase of a $5 million-plus home near New York.



Outside court, Diandra Douglas lamented “mudslinging” she felt was directed at her.
