Popular Hollywood film actress Angelina Jolie has lost the bid to remove Judge John W. Ouderkirk from her divorce proceedings with her ex-husband Brad Pitt. Jolie asked the court to remove Judge Ouderkirk from her divorce proceedings in the month of August, 2020.
Judge Ouderkirk is the same judge who was present when both the actors got married in the year 2014. Previously, Jolie claimed that Ouderkirk was unable to disclose his “ongoing business and professional relationships” with Brad Pitt’s legal team.
The Superior Court of California denied Jolie’s request considering the fact that Judge Ouderkirk made all the necessary disclosures on his previous relationship with the law firm hired by Pitt, before he was assigned the divorce case. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce case is in the court for a period of 4 years.
