Torlonia denies adultery charges

June 3, 1927

Prince Marino Torlona denied today the charges of infidelity lodged against him by his wife, the former Elsie Moore, reports the Associated Press.   The princess has brought "a divorce action" against her husband in the Supreme Court in Bridgeport, Connecticut.   The prince's lawyers say that he will fight the allegations brought against him.  His earlier claim in a "plea in abatement" of no jurisdiction was overruled by the Judge.  He claimed that that the Connecticut courts "cannot accept jurisdiction" as his wife is a "resident of Italy."
