The California Supreme Court on Monday ruled a divorce case is not a fair one.
In the majority opinion, Chief Justice Carlos Lira found the judge’s order to seal papers was unconstitutional.
The ruling came a day after the court denied an emergency appeal filed by a husband who said he was forced out of his marriage by his wife’s insistence.
In court filings, the husband said his wife forced him out of the union by filing divorce papers that did not contain any evidence of domestic violence.
The divorce proceedings, which were initially scheduled to be scheduled for December, were postponed after the husband filed a second petition.
The husband was married to his wife, who was pregnant with his child.
He told a judge in June that his marriage was in shambles after his wife said she would divorce him if he didn’t stop her from making more than $10,000 a month in back pay and expenses.
The judge later ordered a divorce in a divorce decree from the California Supreme court.
