Hunter Biden Ordered to Appear in Arkansas Court for Paternity Case
In a move that is sure to further embarrass the Biden administration, Hunter Biden has been ordered to appear in court in Arkansas to answer questions about his paternity case. The order comes after Biden repeatedly failed to appear for previous hearings, despite being ordered to do so by the court.
The case centers on a child that Biden fathered with Lunden Roberts, an Arkansas woman. Biden has already admitted to being the father of the child, but he has refused to cooperate with the court in setting child support payments.
In a recent hearing, Biden’s attorney argued that his client was too busy to appear in court. However, the judge was not impressed with the excuse and ordered Biden to appear in person for the next hearing.
After the judge issued the ruling, Brent Langdon, Hunter Biden’s attorney in the paternity suit, told her that a laptop associated with his client — and possibly containing income tax records — was still in a repair shop.
Can you believe that this was the excuse given for Hunter not being able to provide information?
The order is a major victory for Roberts, who has been fighting for years to get Biden to take responsibility for his child. It is also a setback for the Biden administration, which has been struggling to deal with the ongoing scandal surrounding Hunter Biden’s business dealings.
“From now on … I want both of your clients at every hearing I conduct,” Independence County Circuit Judge Holly Meyer told attorneys representing Hunter Biden and Lunden Roberts, the mom of his 4-year-old unacknowledged daughter, Navy.
Judge Meyer didn’t mince words with the attorneys on a Zoom call Monday, complaining that litigation was taking too long.
“I will no longer allow us to excuse clients,” she warned, according to Arkansas Democrat Gazette.
Hunter, 53, will be required to be present during the next in-person hearing scheduled at 9 a.m. on May 1.
Hunter Biden's attorney in Arkansas child custody case currently dodging when judge asks whether laptop belongs to Hunter.
Judge: "Is your client's position that it’s not his laptop?"
Biden's lawyer: "Your honor, I’m not in the position to even begin to answer that question."
