Judge Tim Shea Refuses to Step Down in Dwight Howard & Royce Reed’s Custody Case
Everyone wants a fair trial.
Doesn’t matter if it is criminal, civil or in family court. Dwight Howard and Royce Reed have a son, it is the only child Dwight publicly claims even though we know he has at least 2 and possible 4 more secret children (Dwight Howard’s Secret Baby Mamas Hope Alexa,Tiffany Render & Maybe More Photos).
Howard though wants custody of his son which is fine and he has a legal right to do that. The issue at hand is does he have the judge in his pocket.
After some investigation the Judge does have a shady past (Dwight Howard Files For Custody of His Son..Royce Reed Says Judge Biased Against Women)
But he is refusing to step down from the case.
TMZ broke the story … the NBA star’s baby mama Royce Reed filed a motion earlier this month — demanding Judge Tim Shea recuse himself from the case because she believes he’s biased against mothers who have babies out of wedlock with NBA players.
According to Reed — who’s fighting to retain primary custody of their son — Dwight’s attorney is listed as one of Shea’s endorsers on his website … so there’s also a conflict of interest.
Dwight filed docs in response, defending Shea’s position as the arbiter in their custody case — claiming the only reason Reed perceives a bias is because she’s intolerable in court … “making faces, spinning around in a chair, laughing” … and even “storming out of the courtroom.”
This week, the judge refused to remove himself from the case. It’s unclear why.
Royce went to Twitter to voice her frustrations.
Regardless of what you think of Royce or Dwight, it is pretty clear that the Judge in this case track record is shaky.
Based of the numerous complaints about him, it would be prudent that he stepped down so Dwight and Royce can both get fair treatment in regards to what is best for their son.
Because that is what is most important….right?
