Hunter Biden child-support case hearing postponed
Hunter Biden got a break Monday when a judge postponed a hearing in his child-support case until the end of the month.
Biden’s baby mama, ex-stripper Lunden Roberts, had been pushing to force the former vice president’s son to appear in Arkansas court Tuesday for a pre-trial hearing, saying his refusal was part of his attempts to stone-wall the case.
Biden, 49,claimed that he wasn’t given enough notice of the hearing to be able to attend.
Judge Holly Meyer, in an order issued just after 2:30 p.m. Monday, said she would grant Biden’s request to have the hearing postponed till 9:30 a.m. Jan. 29 so he could be there in person.
“The hearing will be for the purpose of addressing temporary child support for the minor child and other matters,” the judge wrote, referring to Roberts’ 17-month-old child.
A second pre-trial hearing is scheduled for March 13 “for the purpose of addressing discovery issues which remain outstanding at that time,” the judge added.
Biden denied paternity in the case until a DNA proved he was the baby’s dad, according to court papers.
Roberts, 28, in her quest for financial support from Biden, is demanding documents including from his controversial work for the Ukrainian natural-gas company Burisma, a lucrative arrangement that triggered the impeachment probe into President Trump.
Meanwhile, a new filing in Roberts’ case Monday indicated that Biden’s crack-pipe past could come back to haunt him in the child-support proceeding.
