Court Grants Bryan's Request to Seal Divorce Proceedings

The Superior Court accedes to keeping the dissolution of Governor Bryan's marriage away from public scrutiny

The V.I. Superior Court has granted Governor Albert Bryan's request to seal proceedings in his divorce from First Lady Yolanda Bryan. The case, ST-2023-DI-00113, no longer appears on the court docket for the District of St. Thomas/St. John.

Last November, Governor Bryan appealed to the courts to allow the divorce petition, which he initiated, to be filed under seal. His attorney argued that the matter would generate unwanted publicity which would potentially "adversely affect his wife and two children."

The lawyer also argued that the dissolution of the governor's marriage is a "private matter which does not merit public inquiry.

Despite Governor Bryan's apparent concern for the welfare of his wife, Virgin Islands society has been buzzing about his seeming elevation of a female friend into the spotlight. At the official Government House Christmas party on St. Thomas in December, it was not the First Lady who welcomed guests but Governor Bryan's companion, with whom he danced and embraced during the festivities.
