In the most recent court filings, Roberts' lawyers claim that Hunter Biden, 53, has failed to provide "a single item or word of discovery" surrounding his financial records for their child support lawsuit, which has been an ongoing battle. Roberts' lawyers are calling for Biden to be arrested and held in Cleburne County Detention Center until he hands over the requested documents.
Biden's lawyers tried to renegotiate the monthly amount given to Roberts six months ago citing "loss of earnings", but the single mom is demanding the president's son to provide detailed financial records that show the alleged loss of earnings. Biden was given a two month deadline on February 22 to provide the documents, and his team failed to do so during Friday's court hearing, Daily Mail reports.
The two share a 4-year-old daughter, Navy Jones Roberts, who Lunden is raising by her lonesome as Biden rarely acknowledges her existence. In 2019, Roberts took the First Son to court where he was forced to provide a DNA test which proved that he was the biological father to Navy Jones. Roberts and Biden had a brief fling in 2017.
Clinton Lancaster, Roberts' attorney, accused Biden of "flaunting the dignity and authority of the court" after failing to provide the documents at deadline.
"In those two months, the defendant has provided no additional discovery - not so much as one single item or word - and has failed to supplement his answers at the court's directive," Lancaster said before the judge.
"There is no valid excuse or justification for the defendant's failure to provide the required disclosures as the court has granted every single protective order the defendant has asked for since the inception of this case … the defendant is playing games with this court," he added.
Lancaster requested for Hunter Biden to be held in contempt and said to Circuit Judge Holly Meyer, "The defendant's actions are a willful and flagrant violation of this court's previous order entered on the defendant's motion. This court should incarcerate the defendant in the Cleburne County Detention Center until he complies with this court's orders and answers discovery. In the alternative, this court should sanction the defendant as appropriate and just."
In 2019, the legal battle began and Roberts won a $2.5 million settlement from Hunter for child support.
Friday's court filings also revealed that Biden's legal team is allegedly attempting to block Roberts from retaining former Trump administration staffer Garrett Ziegler as an expert witness. Ziegler is currently being sued by Hunter Biden for allegations of harassment regarding his infamous stolen laptop, Daily Mail reports.
Hunter Biden, along with President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden, have never met Navy Jones, nor have never publicly acknowledged her existence. In January, Hunter requested that the court's deny Roberts' request for Navy to take his surname.
The next court date will be held in July, according to the outlet.
The president's son has found himself to be in a plethora of legal issues over the past few years. In addition to Roberts' child support lawsuit, Hunter Biden, a recovering drug addict, is currently under criminal investigation for both tax crimes and a felony gun purchase. He has also been under federal investigation for shady foreign business dealings in both Ukraine and China, which were first revealed through his emails in the "Laptop from Hell."
