No NFL pension for SC woman in bigamy case

Nov 11, 2010 7:55:00 PM - thestate.com
A Pennsylvania woman will get the pension of former NFL running back Tom Sullivan because he didn't divorce her before marrying again.

A federal judge says Sullivan's second wife, a South Carolina woman, should no longer receive his $2,700-a-month NFL spousal benefit.

Sullivan played for the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns from 1972 to 1978, rushing for 3,142 yards and scoring 17 TDs in a seven-year career. He died in 2002.

In 1979, Sullivan married Lavona Hill of Folcroft, in suburban Philadelphia. They went their separate ways by 1983.

In 1986, he married Barbara Sullivan, but the judge this month declared the second marriage void under South Carolina bigamy laws.
