I had planned to trek all the way to Lawrenceville this morning, but between the threatening weather, the need to go during morning rush hour and my general distaste for venturing into THE WORLD, I opted not to go. As I reported last month here, this was the day for Angela Stanton’s hearing on her motion for summary judgment on Parks original complaint. I was very hopeful that this whole mess would be over after two and a half years and the judge would find in Stanton’s favor.
My hope was based on the fact that Parks’ motion for summary judgment against Stanton’s countersuit was denied without a hearing and the judge was making some decisions, like requiring Phaedra to sit for another deposition, that were in Angela’s favor.
Sadly, today the motion for summary judgment was denied. The case will continue to jury trial. This case is of particular interest to me, not just because of its minor connection to the Real Housewives of Atlanta, but because it is a case of someone attempting to intimidate someone into silence. You may have noticed recently that I don’t cotton to that too well.
The good news is that Angela Stanton will finally get the chance to speak on the record. Her voice will be heard and documented. She has not backed down and continues to sell her book, Lies of a Real Housewife available on Amazon.
I’ll update you with more details on this morning’s hearing when they are available.
