LOS ANGELES - Marcia Clark, lead prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson murder
trial, lost her bid Monday to keep reporters out of her bitterly fought child
"It seems to me that you're asking me to lock the barn door after the horse ran
away," Superior Court Judge Robert Parkin said Monday.
Parkin lifted a temporary order that had sealed records in Clark's divorce from
computer engineer Gordon Clark, 36. He also ruled lawyers can discuss the case
Gordon Clark has asked for full-time custody of their two sons, ages 5 and 3. He
charged that his estranged wife's long workdays on the Simpson case keep her
from properly caring for the boys.
A custody hearing on the case is scheduled for Monday.
