Lawyers for The Boston Globe are headed back to court to argue for the public release of testimony given by GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney in the divorce of Staples founder Tom Stemberg.
A judge in Norfolk Probate and Family Court postponed a decision Wednesday on the Globe’s request after agreeing to give attorneys for Romney and Staples time to review the former Massachusetts governor’s 1991 testimony.
Stemberg’s ex-wife appeared in court with lawyer Gloria Allred and told the judge they do not object to lifting the impoundment order on Romney’s testimony.
Attorneys said Romney’s testimony dealt with financial matters. Staples was founded with backing from Romney’s firm, Bain Capital. Tom Stemberg spoke on Romney’s behalf at the GOP convention.
