SMH. We told you some shady isht was going on!
It’s only been a week since a judge ended Usher and ex-wife Tameka Raymond’s long and bitter child custody battle by granting Ush parental control but it appears that Tameka has real reason to request a new trial:
Today, Lisa West, the attorney who represented Tameka in the bitter custody battle filed a HUGE motion where she is requesting a new trial in the case…. and the facts being presented in the motion are EXPLOSIVE!
Tameka’s lawyer alleges that John Mayoue, Usher’s attorney, has won EVERY case that he has ever brought in front of Judge Bensonetta Tipton-Lane, the Fulton County judge who ruled in the custody case.
The legal requirement is that cases be randomly and evenly assigned to judges upon filing, since January 1, 2008, John Mayoue has had 100% of his highest profile cases before this court.
Also according to the legal documents filed today, Mr. Mayoue “garnered 83% of the contributions” made for Judge Bensonetta Tipton-Lane’s reelection campaign…
The Motion also alleges that the Judge did NOT disclose the fact that she had that relationship with John Mayoue prior to the start of the case. Tameka’s attorney says it’s the judge’s responsibility to disclose that information and NOT the attorney’s job to seek it.
Shame on Judge Tipton-Lane. We know from following so many trials (like George Zimmerman for example) that a judge is required to disclose any conflict of interest to the attorneys in the case. We’d say getting all your re-election gwap from the rich and famous guy’s lawyer qualifies as a major conflict. SMH. This broad might be shady as Money Mitt “You’ll Never Count My Cayman Islands Cash” Romney…
Do you think Tameka deserves a new trial? But will she get one?
