Judge orders Biden to appear in Arkansas court over paternity case

A judge has ruled that Hunter Biden must appear in an Arkansas court for his paternity case.

Lawyers for his baby mama Lunden Roberts say former flame Hunter, 53, has not provided ‘a single item or word of discovery’ in their ongoing child support lawsuit.

Independence County Circuit Judge Holly Meyer today ordered Biden to attend the court hearing on May 1 because his absence is ‘interfering with the process of litigation.’

She said today: ‘From now on … I want both of your clients at every hearing I conduct. I will no longer allow us to excuse clients because it is interfering with the progress of litigation, which is taking way too long to get over simple points.’

In a Friday filing, lawyers for Roberts insisted the recovering drug addict should be locked up at the Cleburne County Detention Center and stay there until he complies with a court order to hand over the docs, revealed.

The judge’s latest demands comes after she expressed frustration during a Zoom hearing Monday. The comment came after Biden’s paternity case representative Brent Langdon said that his laptop was still in a repair shop.

There will now be an in-person hearing for 9am on May 1 at the Independence County courthouse in Batesville, Arkansas, which Biden must attend.

The filing comes as it’s learned Hunter’s lawyers are scheduled to meet with US attorney David Weiss next week over four charges against him – three related to tax crimes and a felony charge related to a gun purchase.

The child support bombshell comes six months after Hunter tried to recalculate the monthly amount he pays Roberts, 32, the mother of Navy Joan Roberts – the little girl he barely acknowledges is his.

The move backfired when single mom Roberts refused to re-negotiate and demanded that Hunter produce detailed financial records to demonstrate why he’s suffered a ‘substantial’ loss of earnings.

In the new filing, her attorney, Clinton Lancaster, accuses the First Son of ‘flaunting the dignity and authority of the court’ by failing to adhere to the discovery rules and deadlines which were reasserted at a February 22 hearing.

‘In those two months, the defendant has provided no additional discovery – not so much as one single item or word – and has failed to supplement his answers at the court’s directive,’ Lancaster fumes.
