Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened. The judge does have the ability to ban specific people from the courtroom if their presence causes a disruption to the proceedings. You could file a Motion to Ban [Name] (Or you could call her Husband's Affair or similar). Explain to the judge how her presence causes a problem, and he has the ability to exclude her. There's no reason that she needs to be there, unless you were trying to prove adultery. And even if you were, he proved it for you yesterday. There wouldn't be any reason for her to come back. So the judge could allow it. Please rate my answer positively to ensure I get credit for the time I spend helping. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to scroll to the right. Thank you.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
