Hunter Biden must attend all court hearings related to the ongoing Arkansas paternity case, a judge has ruled.
Independent county circuit judge Holly Meyer told lawyers defending Hunter Biden and Lunden Roberts, mother of his 4-year-old, unidentified daughter, Navy, “From now on…
Meyer criticized the lawyers during a Zoom call on Monday, complaining that the lawsuit was taking too long.
According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, she warned that “we will no longer allow our clients to make excuses.”
Hunter, 53, is due to appear at the next in-person hearing scheduled for May 1 at 9:00 am.
The judge handed down the ruling after Hunter Biden’s paternity litigation attorney, Brent Langdon, said that a laptop related to his client and possibly containing income tax records was still at the repair shop.
A back-and-forth argument ensued between Meyer and Langdon, with the judge pressuring the lawyer to say if the laptop belonged to his client.
Langdon has tried to distance himself from “everything” related to the notorious laptop, adding that he “is not in a position to begin answering that question.”
The exchange came after Langdon filed for a restraining order against Garrett Ziegler, a former adviser to President Donald Trump and founder of the non-profit organization Marco Polo, with Roberts serving as an expert witness on the contents of Hunter’s laptop.
Biden’s nemesis Ziegler wrote a 644-page analysis report on the laptop last year.
Meyer denied a temporary restraining order against Ziegler.
Roberts, a former stripper, is suing Hunter Biden for child support for their daughter, Navy, born in August 2018.
