Service by YouTube: Woman Uses Video to Detail Divorce Case Against Husband

Usually, divorce parties wait for service of papers to learn the details of the case for termination of their marriage and details of a settlement. In yet another example of the transformation YouTube has wrought, Tricia Walsh-Smith used the YouTube video below to detail her case against her husband, Philip Smith, president of the Shubert Organization, the largest theater owner on Broadway. She details everything from their prenup to pictures of “evil” and “nasty” family members.

A former actress and playwright Walsh-Smith uses YouTube to humiliate her husband. Such public demonstrations are rarely recommended by lawyers, who fear a backlash from judges. Moreover, anything stated in the video can be used in the trial. Yet, the case appears a straight contractual question over prenups and settlements, so she may have less to lose.

    It would be in bad taste and demonstrate my current level distemper … were I to tell you what I would like to see around his neck.

    The do resemble each other, but I haven’t seen Scalia with the nice lace doily around his neck –lately.

  4. Wait !!! Isn’t Judge Judy a Supreme Court Justice ???

    Silly me.

    I just realized I always confuse her with Antonin Scalia.

  5. I think video jurisprudence all started with that smarmy Doug Llewellyn on the People’s Court. It’s downhill from there. Pretty soon Judge Judy will be elevated to the US Supreme Court.
