Tim Duncan Divorce To Wife Is Finalized
In an unusual and secret hearing Tuesday that didn’t even occur at the Bexar County Courthouse, state District Judge David A. Canales granted the divorce between Duncan and his college sweetheart, Amy.
My San Antonio reports:
The judge later told the San Antonio Express-News that he held the hearing during his lunch hour at the offices of Tim Duncan’s lawyer, Sue Hall, at her request. The couple and their lawyers were present.
Several court observers saw the special request as unusual given that so-called “home” visits by judges are not normally afforded to the general public.
“I would say it’s highly unusual, but I think it would be highly disruptive for them to come to court,” said attorney Jean Brown, who practices family law.
Canales said it wasn’t out of the ordinary for a judge to hold an on-the-record hearing off-site, though it was the first time he has been asked to do it.
Notice of the hearing appeared nowhere on any public docket. Canales said that when a judge gets an agreement in a divorce case, it is not necessary to give public notice of a hearing.
He added that the parties felt uncomfortable coming to court because of the possible “paparazzi” factor — people taking pictures of them or asking for autographs.
“I don’t see it as doing a special favor for the sake of a favor,” Canales said. “These folks were involved in a very private matter. It was mainly for privacy.”
Details of the divorce, such as the division of assets and which parent gets custody of their two children, were not immediately released.
Looks like the swirl can’t always win. Timmy is back on the market ladies!
