Parks sat for Stanton’s deposition in February. Since then, Parks ducked and dodged Stanton’s lawyer’s requests to sit for her own deposition in the presence of Stanton.

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.
