Angelina Jolie seeks judges removal in Brad Pitt case over ‘untoward happenings

Reportedly, it was discovered by one of Jolie's attorneys, though it had been disclosed to Jolie's legal team that Ouderkirk reportedly had been on a few cases with Kiley way back in 2012 or 2013.

In the papers, Pitt's legal team accuses the actress of making a "transparently tactical gambit" to delay matters, adding that it will be their own children who are "hurt most" by the hold-up. The papers state that Jolie's motion for replacement of Judge Ouderkirk should be denied. They share six children, Maddox, 19, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12. The actress alleged that Ouderkirk had a conflicting relationship with Brad's own attorney, Anne C. Kiley (although it's also worth noting that Ouderkirk was the same judge "hand-picked" by Angelina to preside over the couple's nuptials back in 2014, according to recent court documents).

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor's team have since responded, saying on Thursday the request is "a thinly-veiled attempt by Jolie to delay the adjudication of long-pending custody issues in this case" and "influence" the outcome.

'Her lawyers have also worked with him, so the only excuse for their filing is that her team knew they were likely to lose and they needed to stall by changing the referee in the fourth quarter'.

"Jolie's abrupt cry of judicial bias reeks of risky religion and desperation, to not point out careless disregard for the procedural guidelines meant to root out legitimately conflicted judicial officers", Brad's attorneys state within the authorized paperwork.

The submitting says Ouderkirk has neglected to uncover the occurrences that built up the current, continuous, rehash supporter dating among the pick and Respondent's direction. "Nonetheless, for Jolie to now declare that such participation is disqualifying grounds for Decide Ouderkirk is exclusively preposterous".

Last week Jolie claimed that Judge John W. Ouderkirk - who married the former couple at their French estate Château Miraval in 2014 - failed to disclose other "business relationships" he had with Pitt's lawyers, suggesting that he would be "biased" in their divorce case.

As per Page Six, Jolie already filed a request in Los Angeles Superior Court. She stated that Judge Ouderkirk must be pulled out from the divorce case she filed four years ago. "The one manner litigants can belief the method is for everybody concerned to make sure that there's transparency and impartiality", DeJean concluded.

The papers declare that at some level of the Jolie-Pitt lawsuits, Judge Ouderkirk has allegedly "did not uncover the cases that demonstrated the fresh, ongoing, repeat-customer relationship between the mediate and (Pitt's) counsel". While their court dealings were turbulent at first, as seen in public divorce/custody documents, the pair later filed to have them sealed to ensure privacy.
