Jolie filed a motion stating that Judge John W. Ouderkirk has allegedly “neglected to reveal the cases that showed the current, ongoing, repeat-customer relationship between the judge and Brad Pitt’s counsel.”
Contradicting the claim, a source near the ex-spouses disclosed to Page Six this is in actually delay tactics or strategy by the Lara Croft actress because she thought things weren’t getting into her favour.
The source stated, “Jolie is just trying to fire the private judge overseeing their separation case. She has each option to do this, however, if she thought she was in a great spot during this legal proceeding, she wouldn’t need to do it. This is often a classic case of somebody expecting a nasty decision trying to delay the procedure by requesting a new referee.”
This is a strange move by Jolie, the source included, sharing that Brad Pitt’s team want to stay with a similar judge.
“This is about how much time Brad gets with the children, how does quality sharing time with the children work. This separate has been happening for four years, for goodness’ sake.”
