Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s been exposed again.
This time a Manhattan judge has yanked a confidentiality caption that was shielding the disgraced pol’s divorce case with his soon-to-be ex-wife, Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, from the public. Documents that are sealed usually have some sensitive information in them that cannot get out to the public. However, in Weiner’s case it is obvioius there is no sensitive information that needs to hidden from the public. Any minor victim of Anthony Weiner will not be listed in any public record because of their age. Weiner’s criminal history does not fall under confidentiality principles of law.
In California the judge must find certain factors in order to seal court documents such as an overriding interest exists that overcomes the right of public access to the record, the overriding interest supports sealing the records; a substantial probability exists that the overriding interest will be prejudiced if the record is not sealed; the proposed sealing is narrowly tailored; and no less restrictive means exist to achieve the overriding interest.
