Where did this come from? City Attorney Mike Aguirre has decided to go public with his dispute with the Union-Tribune over his sealed divorce papers. It’s an attack on the U-T for acquiring the records from his divorce 17 years ago without notifying him or his ex-wife.
“Most disturbing was the improper act of taking the documents before they were redacted by the court,” said Attorney Michael Aguirre. “If it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone. This backroom collaboration spotlights the U-T s disregard for the law in a desperate attempt to discredit anyone who disagrees with their journalistic viewpoint.”
