Judge defends decision to seal records of Lambert and Shelton’s divorce
Pottawatomie County Associate District Judge John Gardner in Oklahoma recently defended his legal move to seal the divorce files of country musicians Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, according to the San Jose Mercury News on July 30.
A report from The Oklahoman showed that attorneys, media figures, and the public criticized Gardner’s decision, as the country stars are public figures. However, Gardner said the move was intended to keep the musicians’ lives private and free of public scrutiny. He noted that public scrutiny of the case would compromise both parties’ personal and financial privacy. This was one of Gardner’s last moves as a judge, as he was set to retire in the last week of July.
