Angelina Jolie has lost her bid to get the judge tossedoff her and Brad Pitt’s divorce case. As we told you, she wanted Judge John W Ouderkirk removed because he officiated their 2014 wedding. The way she sees it, he promised to disclose any conflicts of interest – something her camp says he “utterly failed” to do. He’s accused of repeatedly failing to disclose his ongoing and “growing” relationships with Brad’s lawyers.
The Superior Court of California in Orange County didn’t see it Angelina’s way. In addition to keeping Ouderkirk on the case, the ruling also says that her bid to remove him was “untimely” because she knew about his appointment for over two years.
Brad’s legal team claimed that the move was “a thinly-veiled attempt by Jolie to delay the adjudication of long-pending custody issues in this case.”
