My ex-husband has a transcript of our divorce trial. He has given several copies to friends. Can I do anything?
The short answer: "no." Parts of the court process are private – but, in general, anything which happens in open court is in the public domain. Access to court records pertaining to family law cases is slightly restricted but, even then, there is no general rule of privacy for such records.
Does a litigant who is represented by a lawyer have an advantage and, if so, is that unfair?
Does reliance on professional advice give you an automatic right to sue the advisor when things do not go as expected?
