Judge in Raymond vs Raymond Case Steps Down

Straightfromthea.com reports that Judge Bensonetta Tipton-Lane, who presided over the contentious Raymond vs Raymond child custody case, has stepped down.

In a controversial ruling in September, Judge Tipton-Lane awarded Usher Raymond full custody of his two boys, ages 4 and 5. Prior to the judge’s ruling, Raymond shared custody of the boys with his ex-wife, Tameka Foster-Raymond.

Following the ruling, Foster-Raymond’s attorney, Lisa West, filed a Motion for Recusal, accusing Tipton-Lane of bias in light of Judge Lane’s close ties with Usher Raymond’s attorney, John Mayoue, who contributed to Judge Lane’s reelection campaign.

Sandrarose.com was the first blog to bring you the news of Judge Lane’s ties to Usher’s attorney.

After the break, watch a CBS News investigative report into the FBI probe of the Raymond vs Raymond decision, courrtesy of Hiphopenquirer.com.

      Bad, all he need is a lil’ sprankle of Eye-talian dressing, some gar-lick powder, Lawry’s, and an onion. Sliced. With a lil’ chicken broth at the bottom of the pan.

      Put some foil over him, put him on 350 for about an hour, take the foil off and let him crisp just so across the top, and that’s good eatin’.

      Well alright then… I just think that damn Judge was wrong for giving Usher full custody…She could have worked it out to where they share custody. Maybe she should have stepped down due to she was getting old and seenile…Somebody (I aint saying no names) said Judge Tipton-Lane Thought Tameka was a man dressed up like a woman, trying to steal Usher kids away from him…hump! she wasnt falling for that shiat and went ahead and gave the REAL Father FUULLLLL custody!

      choose your battles wisely. Lisa West must be preparing to practice law in another state or she has allies with more power than Benson, who aren’t that fund of her (Benson). You choose to go to battle, it better be one you know you’re going to win, but also one that will garner respect vs leaving you black balled. it looks live victory, but in the long run is it really (for West)?
