Former Bush Lawyer John Farren Sued By Wife for Attack
Mary Margaret Farren filed a lawsuit last week in Connecticut trial court against her husband, John Michael Farren. Farren, a former deputy general counsel to George W. Bush, has been charged with attempted murder, first degree strangulation and assault after he allegedly attacked his wife with a flashlight and choked her until she passed out. Mary Farren spent time in Norwalk Hospital with a broken jaw and nose, lacerations to her face and head and another separate injury to the back of her head. It is reported that Mary Farren asked her husband for a divorce before he attacked her.
Mary Farren has filed a $30 million lawsuit against John Farren, alleging that the attack against her has left her unable to work. She is an attorney at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. In an affidavit that accompanied her suit Mary Farren said, “Given the community in which we live, and the station of living to which we are accustomed, and our plans for the future and the education of our children, the defendant’s obligations to support his children and me are substantial”. Local family attorney Wayne Effron is representing Mary Farren in the civil suit and divorce case. Timothy Moynahan of Moynahan & Minnella is representing John Farren.Former Bush Lawyer John Farren Sued By Wife for Attack by sara
