    To one family, the diaries are a reminder of a missing daughter whose husband has seemingly trampled her reputation since she disappeared.

    To another family, childhood journals of Susan Cox Powell show evidence that points to why the 28-year-old mother of two vanished inexplicably on Dec. 6, 2009 — and why the public should stop asking them what happened to her.

    Now, a Washington judge is set to wade into family discord between Powell’s two families. Susan Powell’s parents, Chuck and Judy Cox, have filed a civil lawsuit against her husband, Josh Powell, and several of his relatives who have maintained a website at susanpowell.org....

    This part of the article posted above is troubling:

    "Fischer said attorneys for Josh Powell can argue that Susan Powell did not have a "reasonable expectation of privacy" when she left her journals in her home. And because the two were married, there’s a possibility that she shared her diaries with her husband, essentially making the materials Josh Powell’s property, too."

    I feel pretty certain that they will get some kind of suppression here until there is some kind of trial.

    He has no right to defame her. IMO.

    Josh and Steve are making it blatantly obvious that they are the bad guys here. How long will it be until the boys are old enough to google search their mom at the library or in the computer lab at school, and see what their father and grandfather have done to their beloved mother?

    First of all I think those diaries are probably not all Susan's writing. I'm betting they somehow both were able to piece together words maybe using trace paper to write something totally not hers in it to bolster their story.

    Why else would JP spend money to keep those diaries? Yes evidence of covering up SP missing status.

    Stafford Frey Cooper, the law firm that filed the complaint is very large, very well known, (even down here in Portland) and very good. I hope they are doing it for costs only as a pro bono service to the community.

    I am not too worried about the troubling parts Jacie highlighted above. If the Powells want to assert that affirmative defense, they will take on the burden of proof. Good luck with that, guys.

    Check out the bio of Anne Bremner, the lead attorney for the Coxes. She does mostly high profile defense work. Glad the Coxes got her before the Powells did!!

    good! I never understood why those 2 would want to publish them in the first place. Besides, they still vomit that Susan is alive and ran off with another man. Well if she's still alive, those journals still belong to her and she certainly didn't give them permission to publish. I find those two (son and dad) really <unusual>.

    Glad someone is advocating for Susan!

    MOO

    Haven't followed this case at all, but a father-in-law who admits he was obsessed with his son's wife, and admits he took ALOT of video and pictures of his daughter-in-law, and wrote about her in his journals?! (Ewwwww!)

    That can't be good.

    MOO..these men want to destroy her reputation so that when her body is found there will be a defense for SP.......cause they say she had an affair with his father. This woman had no chance at the hands of these two men. If she is truly dead she is in God's hands now. These men are easy to see through. MOO
