A judge ordered former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter to appear next week in an Arkansas court for a hearing on whether he should be held in contempt for failing to disclose financial information to a woman who says she bore his child.
“Our expectation is that he’s going to appear,” Clint Lancaster, an attorney for the Arkansas woman, Lunden Alexis Roberts, told CNBC on Wednesday.
Biden, 49, is no longer contesting Roberts’ claim of paternity after originally saying he never had sex with the 28-year-old woman.
“The defendant continues to act as though he has no respect for this Court, its orders, the legal process in this state, or the needs of his child for support,” Lancaster wrote. “This court should sanction the defendant as it deems appropriate and just.”
Right Wing The Washington Examiner claims Hunter Biden has rented “a $12,000-per-month Hollywood home while refusing to pay child support.”
While living in the high-end digs, Biden has been fighting a court order to turn over his financial information as part of a paternity suit in Arkansas. On Tuesday, Circuit Judge Holly Meyer ordered Biden to appear in court on Jan. 29 and “show cause, if any exists, as to why he should not be held in contempt” for allegedly failing to submit the information by the court’s deadline earlier this month.
