More Blinders Placed on Scaife Case

A Common Pleas Court judge last week closed the door further on Richard Mellon Scaife's multimillion-dollar divorce from his wife, Ritchie. Family Court Judge Alan Hertzberg had already sealed most of the billionaire's divorce proceedings ("Private Dick," July 27, 2006, CP), a move not usually made for members of the general public. But initially, a suit filed by Ritchie Scaife to retrieve hundreds of thousands of dollars of her possessions, was treated as a separate case whose records were publicly available. That case has now been transferred to Family Court and merged with the already-sealed divorce. Thus, the Tribune-Review publisher's response, and any further legal maneuvers in this proceeding, will now remain hidden as well.
