Say What: Phaedra Parks Skips Out On Defamation Case?!

Rucuss staffFebruary 25, 2014

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks hasn’t bothered to show up to her defamation case to tell her side of the story.

And now Angela Stanton’s lawyer, James Radford, Jr., has asked a Atlanta judge to rule in favor of his client in the matter of Phaedra C. Parks vs. Angela Stanton. Radford cites the fact that Parks has refused to sit for a deposition to show evidence that Stanton defamed the Real Housewives of Atlanta star in her book, Lies of a Real Housewife.

Radford is also asking the court to order Parks to pay Stanton’s attorney’s fees. Phaedra famously sued Stanton for defamation of character after her book was published. Her memoirs accused Phaedra of masterminding a criminal enterprise that landed Stanton behind bars.

James reports:

“I have received numerous inquiries about this motion today. Rather than comment on it, I am publishing it here. I’d prefer to let the pleading speak for itself. In sum, we are seeking summary judgment in favor of Angela Stanton, against Phaedra Parks, on defamation claims asserted by Ms. Parks. All the evidence that has been developed in this case points to the truth of Ms. Stanton’s book, Lies of Real Housewife, and Ms. Parks has failed to put on any evidence to support her claims. Ms. Parks has not sat for her own deposition. We are also seeking sanctions in the form of attorneys fees due to what we believe to be frivolous litigation.”

Meanwhile, Phaedra’s husband Apollo Nida is facing several years in prison over allegations he ran a shady business that stole unsuspecting individuals’ identities to be used on various loan applications and other purposes.
