As I previously referenced here and here James Radford Jr. has filed a Motion for Summary Judgment in the case of Phaedra Parks v Angela Stanton. Radford has published the motion in its entirety on his website. In addition to asking for a judgment in favor of Stanton, Stanton is also requesting legal fees due to the frivolous legal action.
Stanton provides numerous examples of evidence of the close bond between the plaintiff and defendant. Both women it seems have introduced the other to their families and have socialized with each other’s families on numerous occasions. It seems that Phaedra had been a many of Angela’s family gatherings and attended Angela’s mother’s funeral even though Angela herself was incarcerated at the time of her mother’s death. To be fair, Phaedra does love her a good funeral… what? She does!
The motion claims that Phaedra and Stanton committed check fraud schemes together somewhere between 30 and 50 times in multiple states. Later, according to the motion, Phaedra was the instigator, and mastermind of the car theft scheme that led to the arrest of Stanton and her co-conspirator, Everett Tripodis.
According to this motion, Phaedra and Angela spoke almost daily while she was in prison through an intermediary, Regina Matthews. Angela would call Matthews who would put her on a three way conversation with Phaedra. Also, it looks like Phaedra has been ducking sitting for a deposition since last November. Granted, things started falling apart for Phaedra last November. But still, It’s HER CASE! I looks like she started to realize she needed to drop the case then, but never did. It was also pointed out in the motion that her refusal to depose is particularly egregious given she is an officer of the court.
Holy Crap. Bloggers are coming up in Angela’s deposition. Apparently, LynnNChicago was threatened by Phaedra’s attorneys before she died. Also Straight from the A is mentioned as well. I am going to have to get a full-sized copy of the deposition of Angela.
It looks like Angela sold 27 copies of her book for which she was never paid for the Vibe gig before Phaedra shut that down. Since then, at the time of the deposition on February 4th, she had sold 441 copies most of those sales occurred following Apollo’s arrest. Oh Phaedra, shouldn’t you have just left this woman the fuck alone?
Holy CRAP! Angela talked about me in the deposition! Parks team points out that both SFTA and Tamaratattles.com had said that we felt the book was not legit. (I didn’t) Then she shuts the attorney down saying, that since this has all come out I have changed my opinion. Angela is says she would prefer to stick to the facts of the case but that I had posted several times that I now feel that Angela was probably telling the truth after all! I am still sort of freaking out that I am part of her deposition!
I am going blind from reading legal docs all day. I may even postpone my RHOBH recap tonight. But I will do a recap of the Angela Stanton depo ASAP, most likely tomorrow.
What a crazy day!
