It was the most important news of all the media around the globe. Everyone’s attention turned to the couples and their new relationships.
Angelina Jolie asks the Judge to remove the proceedings.
Angelina Jolie asked Monday that the private Judge overseeing her divorce from Brad Pitt be disqualified from the case because of insufficient disclosures of his business relationships with one of Pitt’s attorneys. The actress argues Judge John W. Ouderkirk has to be dismissed from the case that she filed in 2016.
She added he is too late and not forthcoming enough about other cases he was hired for involving Pitt attorney Anne C. Kiley.
The filing said that during the Jolie-Pitt proceedings, Ouderkirk has “failed to disclose the cases that demonstrated the current, ongoing, repeat-customer relationship between the judge and Respondent’s counsel.”
It is said that Brad Pitt is paying Judge John privately to interest in moving over the opposing party’s opposition to having his appointment extended in a high profile case.
Popular actors like Brad and Jolie have a private Judge for their divorce cases.
However, Jolie notes in her filing that just because they’re using a private judge does not mean he or she is not subject to the same rules for disclosure and conflict of interest that all other judges must abide by.
The filing says “it doesn’t matter if Judge Ouderkirk is actually biased. Under California, law disqualification is required so long as a person aware of the facts ‘might reasonably entertain a doubt’ about Judge Ouderkirk’s ability to remain impartial.”
