Embattled local attorney Phaedra Parks, far left, appeared at a deposition for local author Angela Stanton, right, in Gwinnett County in February of this year. Parks is suing Stanton for defamation after she was accused of committing federal crimes in Stanton’s tell-all book, Lies of a Real Housewife. Stanton alleged that Parks was the mastermind behind an auto theft ring that operated in Atlanta. Stanton served prison time for her role in the auto theft ring.
Roadhouse singer Beyonce once enjoyed the support and fierce loyalty of her adoring fans, whom she affectionately refers to as “the Beyhive.” But those days are over. 2 former members of the Beyhive have turned against their idol. The fans filed a suit against Beyonce for damages after they were trampled during Beyonce’s concert stop at the United Center in Chicago on December 13, 2013.
Chicago BeyHive members Raquel Castellanos and Gabriella Davidson are suing Beyonce for an undisclosed amount after they were pushed over by a “rushing mob” entering The United Center for the Mrs. Carter Show on December 13, 2013.
Raquel and Gabriella claim they were trampled, knocked unconscious and suffered broken bones after the crowd rushed the doors at the United Center.
Raquel and Gabriella blame Beyonce, The United Center and Live Nation for not organizing an orderly plan of entry for the huge crowd waiting to get inside for the show.
Embattled local attorney Phaedra Parks, far left, appeared at a deposition for Angela Stanton, right, author of the tell-all book, Lies of a Real Housewife, in Gwinnett County earlier this week. Parks is suing Stanton for defamation after Stanton alleged that Parks was the mastermind behind an auto theft ring that operated in Atlanta.
As I told you previously, Parks refused Stanton’s attorney’s request to appear at her own deposition to provide evidence that Stanton defamed her.
James Radford, Jr., the attorney for author Angela Stanton, has asked a Gwinnett County judge to rule in favor of his client in the matter of Phaedra C. Parks vs. Angela Stanton. Radford cites the fact that Parks, an attorney herself, has refused to sit for a deposition to show evidence that Stanton defamed the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member in her book, Lies of a Real Housewife.
Radford is also asking the court to order Parks to pay Stanton’s attorney’s fees.

Leaked emails published by gossip website TMZ suggests BET Network execs (in particular the males) were uncomfortable with social media personality B. Scott’s feminine appearance. BET hired Scott as a fashion reporter during the 2013 BET Awards last summer. But the discord and disagreements began way before the event, according to B. Scott.
In a post published on his blog on Thursday, Scott said he was “disheartened” by BET’s attempts to tone down his flamboyant personality.
If you own a blog or website, chances are you have received an email or letter from a law firm or photo agency demanding payment for a copyrighted photo you posted years ago and long since forgotten about.
These emails/letters are being sent en masse by a new breed of online predator known as the “Copyright Troll.” Copyright Trolls extort money from bloggers and website owners by threatening legal action if you do not “settle” their copyright violation claims.
Thanks to a loophole in the copyright law, shady law firms and photo agencies are going after bloggers with demands for payments of $3,000 to $4,000 per image to make their problems go away.
The law firms and photo agencies usually go after small website owners and bloggers who will quickly pay their extortion demands without fighting back.
