Phaedra Parks Wins Latest Legal Tussle


Bossip.com:
Phaedra Parks can breathe a little easier now that a lawsuit against her has been dismissed.

The RHOA star whose been battling it out in court for years with “Lies Of A Real Housewife” author Angela Stanton is off the hook after a judge ruled that the case should no longer go forward.

Furthermore Phaedra’s countersuit against Stanton for defamation has also been dismissed.

Stanton’s attorney James Radford confirmed the dismissal today via his website.
Decatur Legal reports:

The case of Phaedra Parks v. Angela Stanton was scheduled for June 6, 2016 in the State Court of Gwinnett County, Georgia. On Monday, June 1, the court entered an order dismissing Ms. Stanton’s counterclaims against Ms. Parks. Ms. Parks subsequently agreed to dismiss her lawsuit against Ms. Stanton if Ms. Stanton would agree not to appeal the order dismissing the counterclaims. So, the case is now resolved and will not go to trial.
We have some disappointment, as Ms. Stanton was anxious for her day in court.
However, a dismissal is a dismissal, and Ms. Stanton is relieved that the claim of defamation has finally been buried. This has been a long, tumultuous process. Ms. Stanton looks forward to focusing on the positive things in her life, to following her dreams of being an author, and to sharing her life story with the world.
