Thursday marked the end of the epic nine-week divorce trial of Oklahoma's richest man, oil magnate and Continental Resources Chief Executive Harold Hamm. With billions of dollars of company wealth at stake, the unusually secretive trial could end with the largest divorce judgment in history.
During the proceedings, lawyers for Harold Hamm and his wife of 26 years, Sue Ann Hamm, presented starkly different views of how much wealth should be divided by the court. The money is mostly tied up in a 68 percent stake in Continental, whose shares are in Harold's name.

Expert witnesses for Sue Ann Hamm, a former attorney at Continental, pressed the court to divide as much as $17 billion in wealth that has accrued in Harold's shares of the company since 1988, when she married Harold.
