Hamm asked the court to dismiss Arnall’s appeal of the divorce decree. The decree was made final back in November following a trial. The decree was made final because Arnall cashed the $975 million check given to her by Hamm. Hamm claims that Arnall was “fully aware” that “accepting the benefits” of the decree meant forfeiting the right to appeal it.

In the divorce, Arnall received less than 10 percent of the couple’s wealth. The majority of their assets and investments went to Hamm, including his majority stake in Continental Resources Inc., which is headquartered in Oklahoma City.

Hamm’s fortune was estimated at $16.1 billion when the decree was made final, but the drop in oil prices has decreased that value by close to 40 percent. Hamm’s net worth dropped to as low at $9.4 billion in December, but has recovered to $11.3 billion as of this week.
