Belly dancing sinks NYC woman's disability claim

NEW YORK Brian McGurk went to court after discovering a blog that showed his 43-year-old ex-wife dancing at a gallery.

In other Internet postings, she wrote about dancing vigorously for several hours every day.

Dorothy McGurk told the court that the dancing was physical therapy for injuries she suffered in a car accident in the mid-1990s.

A county judge didn't buy it -- and reduced her payments to $400 per month.

The judge also ordered her to pay her ex-husband's legal fees and 60 percent from the sale of their home.
