Kim Kardashian & her family have rushed to fight back against Blac Chyna’s attempt to disqualify the judge who presided over their $300 million war. Following losing the courtroom battle, Chyna vowed to appeal the case and refused to give up.
According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, Kim, along with her mother Kris Jenner and sisters Khloé & Kylie, called Chyna’s recent move “frivolous” and “dishonest.” It comes after Chyna said the judge exhibited an “undeniably hostile and extremely biased” attitude toward her and her lawyer Lynne Ciani.
In their motion, Ciani accused the Kardashian-Jenner family of name-dropping Mark Zuckerberg as a former client during a private conference with the judge. She also claimed that the judge’s attitude towards her changed after her mom Tokyo Toni made comments online during the trial. Meanwhile, in the Kardashian-Jenner’s motion, they argue that Chyna waited too late to file the motion.
“[Chyna’s] statement and sworn declaration of disqualification is a baseless effort to save face after losing at trial and is devoid of any legal basis to disqualify Judge Alarcon from presiding over further matters in this action. While [Chyna] and her counsel Lynne Ciani are understandably disappointed about the jury’s defense verdict following an emotionally charged trial, their effort to make a scapegoat of Judge Alarcon is frivolous, dishonest, and deserving of sanctions,”
The iconic family accused Chyna’s lawyer of filing the motion to deflect “blame for her own shortcomings at trial and generate further publicity for [Chyna.] In regard to Tokyo, the family said, “Ms. Ciani and [Chyna] have both used social media to draw attention to themselves and this trial.”
“[Chyna went so far as to request a reserved courtroom seat for her mother. After the first day of voir dire, [Chyna’s] mother made threats against Defendants and Judge Alarcon on social media.”
The family explained that the courthouse Deputy Sheriffs were put on notice and an agreement was made for Tokyo to not attend the trial. The motion demands Chyna’s request for the judge to be disqualified be denied immediately. Stay tuned to Thirsty for future updates.
