Judge denies motion for new trial in Raymond vs Raymond case

Usher Raymond Tameka Raymond Judge Lane

Despite a federal probe into judicial corruption in her courtroom, Judge Bensonetta Tipton Lane denied Tameka Raymond’s request for a new trial Tuesday. Tameka Raymond’s attorneys filed a motion for recusal in September. The motion prompted a federal investigation into corruption in the contentious child custody case between Tameka and her ex-husband Usher Raymond. Tameka Raymond’s attorneys allege a special relationship between Usher’s attorney John Mayoue and the judge.

Last night, Tameka responded to the motion’s denial in a tweet on her Twitter page.

    Halloween Fun or Animal Cruelty?

    When human beings dress up their furry friends in Halloween costumes, is it just good fun or animal cruelty? The tradition of dressing up animals in costumes every Halloween may seem like fun for you, but for your animal it could be deadly.

    If you are one of the insensitive pet owners who dress up your dogs for fun, here’s an overview of what happens when your dog overheats. Unlike humans who sweat to cool off, dogs don’t sweat. When a dog is hot he pants by breathing quickly to remove heat from his body. Some dogs may drool excessively when they overheat as well.

    VH1’s excellent documentary series ‘Behind the Music’ explored R&B singer Toni Braxton’s meteoric rise to fame, and the many problems that sometimes accompanies the fast track to success.

    Braxton opened up about her contract dispute with LaFace Records founders LA Reid and Babyface Edmonds, who produced such hits as “Un-break My Heart” and “Another Sad Love Song.”
