CBS Atlanta actually launched an investigative report on the judge who granted the singer custody of their two children.
Questions arose about the relationship between Usher’s lawyer and the deciding judge a while back, along with a few other holes in the case.
The former couple returned to the court just last week after Usher’s ex-wife asked the judge to recuse herself from the case; and requested a new trial. She’s fighting it.
Monday night, CBS Atlanta News aired a special report surrounding the suspicions of the case, noting that some Georgia judges avoid disclosing their relationships with attorneys. It’s a perfectly legal practice, but does draw up thoughts about fair trials.
When Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane awarded full custody to Usher, Tameka’s attorney learned that Usher’s celebrity lawyer may have helped her get re-elected in 2008.
