Angelina Jolie loses battle to remove judge in Brad Pitt divorce case
22 November 2020
Actor Angelina Jolie has lost her battle to have Judge John W Ouderkirk removed from her bitter divorce proceedings with ex-husband Brad Pitt. Ouderkirk is the same judge who married the actor couple in 2014. Jolie had previously claimed that Ouderkirk failed to disclose ‘ongoing business and professional relationships’ that he had with Pitt’s legal team, thereby causing a conflict of interest. She had said that it wasn’t ‘fair’ for him to preside over the divorce proceedings.
