CfA’s Work to Unseal Labor Nominee Andrew Puzder’s Divorce Records

On February 2, 2017, Campaign for Accountability filed a motion in the 21st Circuit Court in St. Louis County, Missouri to unseal the divorce records of Andrew Puzder, President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Labor. After CfA filed the motion, the court clerk released some previously unreleased documents, but the divorce file remained sealed. On February 15, 2017, Puzder withdrew his nomination, prompting the judge overseeing the matter to dismiss CfA’s request as moot, but allowing the group to refile if the situation changed. On January 19, 2018, CfA filed a new petition in the 21st Circuit Court again asking the court to unseal Puzder's divorce records, after Politico reported the White House is evaluating Puzder for another, unspecified position in the Trump administration.
