Kate Walsh Hubby -- No Protection Required

5/18/2009 2:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kate WalshKate Walsh's accounting firm did not get the protective order it was after -- the judge felt it wasn't necessary to order estranged hubby Alex Young to stop demanding financial info.

Young has been on the firm's ass, demanding to know exactly how much he's owed for the house he and Kate purchased together. Fact is -- the house has gone down in value since they bought it in 2007.

Alex has not only made repeated demands on the firm, but today in court Kate's lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, said he's been on ABC network's ass as well, demanding financial info. Wasser said ABC will be asking for a protective order against Young. Famous pit bull lawyer Marty Singer (one of Walsh's lawyer's) will also ask for a protective order this morning.

Young's lawyer, Jeff Sturman, told us, "The judge found there was no basis for a protective order ... that the accounting firm filed it's motion prematurely and without attempting to informally resolve matters. And the accounting firm was required to pay approximately $6,100 in Young's fees."

The couple was only married for 14 months before separating.

IDK that A**Hole is possibly jeopardizing her job, why wouldn't there be an order, it's harrassment! Why does he need to know what she makes, he needs to get his OWN money, freeloader!

What an idiot. He's a Fox Executive who makes millions himself. Greedy.

I guess reports of him being a control freak are true.

I've never ben divorced, but I don't see how it can be legal for a spouse to demand info from an employer to the point of that employer requesting a restraining order! Isn't the burden on Kate to disclose any necessary financial information? Like disclosing her tax return to him.

It's just too bad that guys in this world has stopped being men. Why can't he just man-up and let this woman get on with her life? He has money that he'll never ever spend. He'd better realize, as some people do, that it dosen't matter how much money or material things you get on this earth, when you die, there won't be ONE U-HAUL truck following behind the hearse carrying that wealth.

He has money y is he after her's. Plus he is the one who is leaving her for no reason; he walked out of the marriage and left her to take care of what he left behind. Why does he think he needs n/e thing? Hell he is probably broke and she is being the bigger person by not telling us.

To be clear, Kate Walsh's lawyers lost in court today. They tried to withhold information that Alex Young had the right to know because they are joint marital assets. Laura Wasser and Kate's other attorneys were also given sanctions by the judge for their conduct in this case. Laura Wasser having a special relationship with Harvey Levin did not help her in court today and it won't help her in court next month either!!!

Who are the idiots that are giving Kate Walsh this horrible advice. I mean... seriously... she's lost every motion, hearing, everything related to this case. Her entire legal strategy appears to be, "Oh look, we got an article on TMZ." It's not the same as winning in court Kate. Wake up!!

I can't wait to see what Laura is talking about with the "ABC" matter. Boy... that sounds like some juicy stuff. I wonder when that is going to come out and who will be named when it does.

why?    

OMG, I am so sick of hearing about all these celebs steadily trying to jip people, suing all the time, spending millions on houses they don't need.Have you ever herd of a community more greedy than the people who earn their living in show business? I'm so sick of the pettiness that is in this industry. It amazes me how once a person gets a little fame they start actually believing they are special and the world owes them riches. Get a grip. Police, Fireman, teachers, nurses, social workers, and all the other hard working Americans are the special people, you people in Hollyweird are just that..Greedy and Weird!.

Gil - No your point is far from clear, Alex's ex-Accountants lost in court today, not Kate, or her lawyers. This was an order bought by a third party against Alex. The third party lost. Kate hasn't lost anything yet, except a control freak hubby !
