Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner call off divorce

Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and disgraced former NY congressman Anthony Weiner will reportedly be handling their divorce out of court.

The judge announced from the bench that the case was "discontinued".

"In order to ensure the proceedings have a minimal impact on their child, the parties have chose to finalize their divorce swiftly and privately", her attorney Charles Miller said. Abedin filed a divorce from Weiner in May and listed it as "contested", which meant they had to negotiate in front of a judge. The couple could re-file their divorce as "uncontested", meaning they would not have to appear in court.

But a family law expert said Abedin and Weiner would still have to file for divorce in court if they want their settlement to be legally binding. Weiner's lawyer echoed the statement.

During a press tour after his firing, Damore said being conservative at Google was comparable to " being gay in the 1950s ". Not only was Damore fired after his memo went public, but as he puts it, others who spoke out against him were rewarded.

The couple share custody of their six-year-old son.

Weiner was considered a rising star in the Democratic Party until the former NY congressman admitted in 2011 that he had been sexting multiple women and was forced to resign.

Weiner, a disgraced politician once considered a leading Democratic figure, is now serving a 21-month sentence in MA for sending lewd photographs to a minor.
