Angelina Jolie, seeking a change in the judge handling her custody case with Brad Pitt, seeks to delay the verdict.
On Monday, Jolie filed a motion stating that Judge John W.W. Oderkark allegedly “failed to disclose cases that demonstrate ongoing, repetitive-client relationships between the judge and the current [Pitt’s] lawyer. ”
Opposing the claim, a source close to the former spouse told Page six This is actually a delaying tactic by the Sault actress as she believes things were not going in her favor.
The source said, “Jolie is basically trying to shoot down the private judge overseeing her divorce case.” He has every right to do so, but if he feels that he is in a good place in this legal proceeding, he will not be required to do so. It is a classic case of someone expecting a bad decision trying to delay the process by asking a new referee. “
This is an unusual move for Jolie, the source said, sharing that Pitt’s team wants to keep the same judge.
“It’s about how much time Brad gets with the kids, how he shares his time working with the kids … This divorce has been going on for good for four years.”
