(Newser) – In the everything's-relative department: A judge this week awarded Sue Ann Hamm $995 million, along with assets including a ranch and a home in Oklahoma, in her divorce from oil magnate hubby Harold. Her response: It's nowhere near enough, reports Reuters. Hamm plans to appeal, arguing that the Continental Resources CEO amassed the bulk of his fortune (figure about $14 billion) during their 26-year marriage. As of now, he ranks No. 35 among rich Americans, notes the New York Post. They might yet end up with the priciest divorce ever.
