If you have been following the Brangelina divorce, you know that it has turned into a media circus. According to a recent joint statement, however, they have put away their petty squabbles and sought the services of a private judge to dissolve the marriage. This has the positive effects of being both more private and more efficient. The judicial system is extremely clogged up and it is hard to keep things private. A private judge fixes that. They are also faster and have a more convenient schedule selected by those involved, rather than the judicial system.
