The back-and forth continues in Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s heated custody case.
Pitt scored a win in May when he was tentatively granted joint custody of their five minor children. However, the order came from Judge John Ouderkirk, who officiated the couple’s wedding seven years ago.
That led Jolie to try to discount the judge’s ruling. In July, a California appeals court approved her request to disqualify the judge. According to her legal team, Ouderkirk failed to “disclose multiple professional, business financial relationships, ongoing during the course of the matter, with Pitt’s counsel and their law firms.”
Jolie was granted full custody of their children, while Pitt had visitation rights.
This is the conclusion. Moneyball actor is now responding in court, filing a petition with the California Supreme Court to review the case, which CelebHomes News obtained on Sept. 1.
It reads, “The Court of Appeal effectively upended California’s constitutionally authorized temporary judiciary system and generated widespread confusion and uncertainty for judges, litigants and the California judicial systems as a whole.”
