Governor's Divorce File Sealed From Public View
Governor Robert Bentley and First Lady Dianne Bentley request their divorce record be kept private. And Tuscaloosa Circuit Judge Elizabeth Hamner has issued the order today after the couple’s attorney jointly requested the motion. The request noted the governor's position as a prominent public office holder. Dianne Bentley filed for divorce on Friday, saying the couple's 50-year marriage had suffered an irretrievable breakdown. The divorce filing said the couple separated in January. Court records show that the governor is represented in the divorce by Birmingham attorney Lisa Lynn Woods.
