As I have mentioned before, Phaedra Parks was to report to court on June 6th to both plead her case against Angela Stanton and address Stanton’s counterclaims against her. The judge had enough of Phaedra’s stalling and was making her shit or get off the pot.
Phaedra had no choice but to get off the pot.
James Radford who has been handling Stanton’s case pro bono for YEARS in pursuit of justice for Stanton has issued this statement.
The case of Phaedra Parks v. Angela Stanton was scheduled for trial on June 6, 2016 in the State Court of Gwinnett County, Georgia. On Monday, June 1, the court entered an order dismissing Ms. Stanton’s counterclaims against Ms. Parks. Ms. Parks subsequently agreed to dismiss with prejudice her lawsuit against Ms. Stanton if Ms. Stanton would agree not to appeal the order dismissing the counterclaims. So, the case is now resolved and will not go to trial.
We have some disappointment, as Ms. Stanton was anxious for her day in court. However, a dismissal is a dismissal, and Ms. Stanton is relieved that the claim of defamation has finally been buried. This has been a long, tumultuous process. Ms. Stanton looks forward to focusing on the positive things in her life, to following her dreams of being an author, and to sharing her life story with the world.
As I have said all long, there is no way that Phaedra could take the stand and testify under oath. She knew it, and the world knew it. Now that the time had come for her to do just that, it seems like she finagled her way out of it. Why? Because filming for RHOA begins on June 7th. It’s an incredibly inopportune time for Phaedra to have to answer questions about the nature of the financial comingling of funds with Apollo. Allegedly. The problem has always been that Stanton would not drop her counter-charges. So even if Phaedra dropped the charges, she would still have to testiLIE! So those countercharges forced Phaedra to stay in the case. Even if she dropped her charges, thereby getting her off the witness stand she can’t afford to be on, Stanton’s counter charges kept her ass firmly planted in the witness chair.
So yesterday, the judge, Carla E. Brown, who has continuously considered the counter charges for YEARS suddenly found grounds to dismiss the counter claims by Stanton. Things that make you go HMMMMMMM.
Filming for RHOA starts on June 7th, Judge Carla E. Brown wants it off her docket, it seems to me that these two have similar objectives. Phaedra doesn’t want to be forced to testify, so now all of the sudden after how many years??, the judge just suddenly dismisses Stanton’ s counterclaims so that Phaedra can drop her case. And then, Parks drops HER CHARGES.
Have I ever mentioned that there is no rhyme or reason in my mind why Gwinnet County has any jurisdiction in this case? Neither Parks nor Stanton lives or does business in this county. WHY WAS IT BEING TRIED THERE?
How very interesting. I’ve known all along Phaedra could not take the stand. She has way too much to lose. And I seriously doubt the Feds are done with her. It’s only a matter of time in my opinion, which is why Andy coddles her so much. He doesn’t give a shit about her or fall for the “cute kids,” Andy, like the rest of us is waiting for the dominos to fall. And he will capitalize on it, kids be damned. We all know the RHOA are his meal ticket and his favorites are the hoodlums and corrupt and he can’t stand anyone who actually has a functioning brain on the show and understands his game. cough Kenya cough.
TamaraTattles.com has reached out to Angela Stanton for a statement on this decision and will update when and if one is provided.
I assure you I will not let this drop. I have already begun the process of exposing this case. There is way more than this to report on!
UPDATED: Angela Stanton has released the following statement to TamaraTattles.com “God is so good. I was sued for 30 Million Dollars. This lady [Phaedra] held my life up for 5 years just to turn around and dismiss her case against me with prejudice, days before our scheduled trial date. She can never come after me again. I am finally free!
Apparently, Phaedra cannot pull these court shenanigans anymore and Stanton can continue to tell her story. I’m going to assume there is a whole new chapter of that. The last five years have given her plenty to work with in her second biography.
