Usher Fires Back At Ex-Wife’s Motion For New Trial In Custody Battle
R&B star, Usher Raymond, is asking a court to deny a request made by his ex-wife, Tameka Foster-Raymond, to arrange a new trial for custody of their two children. As recently reported, Foster-Raymond’s legal team submitted a motion for a new trial in a Fulton County court in Georgia. The court documents contain evidence that could possibly prove corruption at the state judicial level. Foster-Raymond’s legal team has uncovered evidence that shows Usher Raymond’s attorney, John Mayoue, did more than just help Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane raise funds for her campaign re-election. The law firm that represented Usher held a fundraiser for Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane in 2008 that raised $1,278. The money raised was nearly half of the contributions to the judge’s re-election campaign in 2008. Tameka alleges Usher’s lawyer served on the judge’s re-election campaign committee.
According to the court documents, there is distinct evidence that indicates Judge Lane has presided over more of John Mayoue’s high profile cases then any other judge in the time period that she has been a family court judge. Additionally, Georgia state court rules that governs judges require cases to be evenly distributed among the three sitting family court judges. Based on statistical numbers, Judge Lane has presided over an unusually high percentage of Mayoue’s cases.
