According to the Post, the Connecticut court has granted Melissa permission to depose Maria due to “certain facts which are in issue, or which directly assist in proving the Plaintiff’s [Melissa’s] case, are within the knowledge or power of [Bartiromo].”
Maria is married to Jonathan Steinberg, the CEO of WisdomTree Investments. They married in 1999.
