Divorce is a complex and painful process. Image if everything happening in your divorce case was being published by the media. The public’s right to know allows the media to have open access to courtrooms (this is a 1st Amendment Constitutional right). As a former journalist, I definitely value the right of the public to monitor the courts.
But what about the right to privacy when a marriage has collapsed? Balancing the information that must be argued in court (where the media can hear it) and the information and process going on behind the public eye is a challenge.
