Rep. Murphy is not a party to the divorce. However, the husband in the case, Jesse Sally, a sports medicine physician, sought in July to depose the congressman as part of his divorce from Shannon Edwards, a forensic psychologist.
Following the hearing, Murphy issued a statement: "Last year I became involved in an affair with a personal friend. This is nobody's fault but my own, and I offer no excuses. To the extent that there should be any blame in this matter, it falls solely upon me. I ask the media to respect the privacy of my family. They have done nothing wrong and deserve to be left alone."
Murphy, 64, is married. Ms. Edwards, 32, met Murphy when she contacted his office to volunteer to do work on his mental health bill.
