Harry and Linda Macklowe’s big-money divorce will go to trial in September.

But the enormity of their “significant assets” — including a vast real estate empire and art collection reportedly valued at $2 billion — doesn’t mean the case will be granted special treatment, Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Laura Drager said Monday, according to the New York Post. “There are a lot of other people who are waiting to be divorced and to the extent that your trial takes up court time it means there just isn’t time available for the next case,” she said.

Upon leaving the courtroom, Harry — who reportedly offered his estranged wife $1 billion to end their 58-year marriage — refrained from telling jokes, as he’s done in the past.

Linda, however, joked that “maybe Trump will be next” after learning that former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci was ousted. [NYP]E.B. Solomont
