In his legal documents, he had accused Ann of “ with Springsteen, who resides in Rumson, N.J. and Colts Neck, N.J. at various times and places too numerous to mention." Both Ann and the singer have denied the allegations. And now, Superior Court Judge Patricia Roe, in a brief hearing in the Toms River courthouse, has rejected Ann"s plea for secrecy.
"Family Court is not unique in presiding over cases that involve enormous, personal embarrassment," the New York Daily News quoted Roe as saying. "Openness is the norm, not the exception. Mere embarrassment or a desire to avoid the potential criticism doesn''t suffice to make good cause," she added.
