A probate and family court judge on Thursday said she will allow the release of Romney's testimony. But the judge refused to rule on whether to lift an order prohibiting Maureen Sullivan Stemberg and her ex-husband from commenting on Romney's testimony or his interactions with them during the divorce.
Allred said she'll file a motion as early as next week seeking to lift the order.
Staples was founded with backing from Romney's firm, Bain Capital. Tom Stemberg spoke in glowing terms about Romney at the GOP convention in August.
