Circuit Judge Holly Meyer ordered Hunter Biden to appear for a child support deposition next month, rejecting his bid to delay the trip to Arkansas until April.
Hunter Biden tried to delay traveling to Arkansas to give a deposition in the child support lawsuit filed by his baby mama Lunden Roberts until after key voting contests for his daddy Joe Biden.
But the judge wasn’t having it and scolded Hunter’s lawyers.
“He needs to make himself available and unless his hair is on fire, he needs to be in Arkansas and he needs to be in a deposition,” the judge told Hunter’s lawyers, denying their bid to delay until after key primaries and Super Tuesday.
The Judge blasted Hunter Biden and scolded his lawyers.
Via the Arkansas Democrat Gazette:
Biden “can be available April 1, 2020,” Langdon wrote in a “motion to quash” and “motion for protective order” filed Tuesday. “My client cannot be available prior to that date.”
During Wednesday’s conference call, Meyer pressed Langdon to explain his client’s unavailability, noting Biden’s purported work status.
“My question to you is, why could your client not be available until after April 1? All the information I have is that he’s unemployed,” she said.
Langdon did not tell the court what was keeping Biden so busy.
When deposition dates were being considered, “I did not have his calendar per se,” Langdon said. “My client stated that he was not going to be available until after April 1.”
During the call, Meyer expressed dissatisfaction with the explanations she had been offered thus far.
“It’s not good enough for him to just say, ‘I’m not available.’ That’s not good enough. I need to know why he’s not available or where he is or what could possibly be more important than what’s going on in this case,” Meyer said. “And again, the only information I have is that your client’s not employed right now, so it’s not a work excuse. So what is it?”
Langdon offered no details about his client’s whereabouts or activities.
After hearing from both attorneys and asking about their calendars, Meyer rejected the March 5 date Lancaster had originally sought as well as the April 1 date proposed by Langdon.
Instead, Biden will need to show up on either March 11 or March 12 to answer questions, the judge stated.
“This matter’s been pending for 10 months now,” Meyer said. “If we put these important parts of discovery off until after that pretrial hearing … we’re putting ourselves in a posture to continue, continue, continue. And that’s not good for anyone in this case,” she said.
Hunter Biden, just like his corrupt father, believes he is above the law and has refused to provide the court with his financial records.
Hunter previously claimed in a court filing that he was broke and without any monthly income in order to avoid paying his baby mama hefty child support payments and legal fees.
And now he’s trying to delay a deposition to benefit his father’s 2020 White House bid.
