When Clerk of the Courts Howard Forman retired at the end of last year, he expected a life of leisure after more than 40 years in public office.
It didn’t work out that way.
Instead of a comfortable and quiet retirement, Howard Forman has been embroiled for months in a divorce with his wife, the current Clerk Brenda Forman.
The fight is over money. A lot of money.
The tawdry spectacle is a tragic codicil to Forman’s long, unsullied life as a public official.
Brenda Forman appears to be dragging out the case, according to several courthouse sources.
“Its delay, delay, delay…I’m alleging that Brenda Forman is purposely trying to delay the process,” says lawyer James Stark, who represents Howard Forman.
Among the delaying tactics Brenda Forman has allegedly used is switching lawyers just prior to a court-ordered mediation.
Stark has asked a court to sanction Brenda Forman.
