SL is quite intelligent. It'd be a compliment to be considered less intelligent than her, which would be a whole helluva lot smarter than you. I'll do the reading for you, "counselor". I will even highlight relevant statements.
Do we need to break this down into monosyllabic, kindergarden level language for you, "counselor?"
Evidence illegally submitted, used in conjunction with divorce, obtained in conjunction with another case cannot be used as evidence. And in nowhere in this appeal is the mention of this as proof of "hush money" agreements. Or is there "special" ink on the computer screen that only delusionals like Che and Duke can read?
Sigh. I'm not even an effing "lawyer" like Che.
Its kind of you to cut and paste the text of the opinion that I already read.
Now I will tell you what it means...the part that you are not understanding, because you don't understand the context of what it is that you are reading.
The court is explaining the application of the law regarding confidentiality of medical records by citing the Hageman case (a case that has absolutely nothing to do factually with the church, or the Kodgers).
It then applies the law from Hageman to the Kodgers' present claim against the law firm that represented the diocese in the Kodgers' original civil claim which sought damages for sexual abuse of their son.
What Che is telling you, you are too dense to understand. You refuse to read between the lines or do any easily performed independent research. Here it is:
As a result of their performing their work in the representation of the Diocese in defending against the Kodgers' original claim, people working at the largest law firm in Cuyahoga County had access to documents indicating that a sexual abuse victim revealed to his psychologist/counselor that the church paid his family a large sum of money ($45,000) as a settlement for his prior victimization. The documents revealed that after receiving that settlement, his family threatened to expose the Diocese' later decision to return the perpetrator to his position in a local parish, and the Diocese then began making false allegations about the victim and his family. Those documents were floated around the law firm and possibly shared with others outside of it, but they were also filed with the court by the victim's lawyers.
Because the Kodgman's lawyers themselves filed the documents with the court, the victim's expectations of confidentiality and privilege in his communications with his therapist were found by the trial court in the second case to have been waived, so Kodgman's later claims against the Diocese' legal counsel for intentional/negligent/reckless infliction of emotional distress were dismissed through an order of by summary judgment issued by the trial court, and that verdict was upheld upon appeal.

You're effing hopeless and a terrible poser.
Explain to us, showing your extreme brilliance, how evidence used in a divorce case, submitted for another case without consent, is proof of a "hush money" agreement via proxy in an APPEAL? God, you're insane or willfully stubborn.
You are seriously making an ignorant ass out of yourself.
You are soooo confused it isn't even worth trying to explain to you. First, I didn't post the link to that case; someone else did. Second, that case is about the Diocese allegedly improperly divulging the Kodgers' medical records. Third, the divorce you keep referencing isn't the Kodgers' divorce but the divorce in a case that was being cited as precedent by the Court of Appeals. You aren't equipped to read that document and understand it.

I provided a link regarding the Dioceses' payment to the Kodgers' that was meant to keep them quiet. You choose not to accept or acknowledge it. Not my fault. You are the horse that one can lead to water but can't force it to drink.

It goes back to the premise: it is NOT PROOF of "hush money." NOT EVIDENCE. That simple. Have to work it backwards and show the "money". It ties NOTHING together factually with evidence that "hush money" was paid to a specific victim.

Duke, I've dealth with many lawyers for many years, on a mulitude of subjects, and you sound nothing like an attorney.

Furthermore, I cannot imagine one of them that would spend the time you do on here, maintain a practice and speak in absolute certainties and as unguarded as you do in your 'opinions.'

Tony drops in once in awhile and makes sense. Topix is your career.

To summarize, I doubt you're an attorney and certainly not one I would use.

Are you arguing a case in front of SCOTUS, or even State court of appeals when not on Topix?

My rate is based upon a formula involving four or five variables:

venue and type of case, a client's ability to pay, the degree of my sympathy for their cause, and my initial judgment of their propensity for being difficult.

Paco would be able to afford an initial one hour consultation, after which I would be drinking heavily with the three hundred dollars he just gave me and never answering another call when I saw his number pop up on my phone.

Despite our differences, Bubba would be charged about 100 an hour, and he and I would probably go to the local tavern to hash them out once in a while with a knitting needle duel.

Kids and parents with no money get the going rate paid by the state.
