CANTON, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts judge has postponed a decision on whether to unseal testimony that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney gave in the divorce case of Staples founder Tom Stemberg.

Ex-wife Maureen Sullivan Stemberg appeared in court Wednesday with lawyer Gloria Allred. They said they did not object to a Boston Globe motion to lift an impoundment order on Romney's 1991 testimony.

Attorneys said Romney's testimony dealt with financial matters. Staples was founded with backing from Romney's firm, Bain Capital.

Tom Stemberg spoke on the former Massachusetts governor's behalf at the GOP convention.

Romney attorney Robert Jones said he does not anticipate objecting but would like time to review the entire transcript.

The hearing is set to resume Thursday.
