BOSTON, MA (CNN) - Celebrity defense lawyer Gloria Allred and the Boston Globe got a Massachusetts court to release Mitt Romney's testimony in the 20 year old divorce case of staples co-founder Tom Stemberg and his ex-wife Maureen Stemberg Sullivan.  

The court refused to lift a gag order that prevents Allred's client from talking about her dealings and interactions with Romney.

Here's what Allred had to say about that."We were very happy that we were able to get Governor Romney's testimony under oath, the transcripts out to the press and to the media, and that I think is important because I think the public has a right to know and that was accomplished. However, we think that looking at those transcripts out of context, because Maureen, because of the gag order that is still in place, cannot speak about those transcripts, is unfortunate and as we indicated in court today we are going to be going into court on our own motion to seek to modify the confidentiality order to obtain the right for Maureen to comment on Mitt Romney's testimony."

Attorneys for Mitt Romney did not object to releasing the testimony. They say don't expect the documents to reveal anything shocking about the Republican presidential candidate.
