Kardashian’s Attorney Blasts Lisa Bloom’s Statement About Blac Chyna’s “Court Victory” – That’s Not Accurate!
The battle between Blac Chyna and the Kardashian family is far from over but it seems to have spilled over to their attorneys.
This week, Blac Chyna’s lawyer, Lisa Bloom, released a statement indicating that Blac Chyna scored a victory in court when the judge decided not to completely throw her case out as the Kardashians requested.
Today the court REJECTED the Kardashian family’s request to strike Chyna’s entire lawsuit. (Instead, the court struck only portions of six paragraphs out of a 317 paragraph complaint.) Most importantly, all of Chyna’s legal claims stay in. Chyna will, therefore, be permitted to have her day in court.
The Kardashian family attorney, Shawn Holley, says that the letter from Lisa Bloom’s office did not tell the entire truth and that it was actually the Kardashians who scored the victory here. He tells Page Six:
The Bloom Firm’s press release is not an accurate statement of what happened in court. In fact, the Kardashians have successfully chipped away at Ms. White’s [Chyna’s] outlandish claims since her lawsuit was filed, culminating in [Wednesday]’s hearing — a hearing at which the Court invited counsel for the Kardashians to seek attorney fees against the Bloom Firm for their failure to support Ms. White’s spurious allegations with actual evidence.
In response, Lisa Bloom says,
Yesterday’s hearing was not an evidentiary hearing, so defense counsel’s comment makes no sense. She is either confused or misleading the public. No evidence can be offered at a hearing about whether our complaint states a viable case. Evidence is put on later, at trial, and we look forward to that day. Defense counsel can try valiantly to spin it, but the court UPHELD virtually our entire case against the Kardashian family against their attempt to have it all thrown out.
Since they lost nearly everything they were asking for, they will also lose any attorneys’ fee application. That’s how it works.
Blac Chyna and the Kardashians are due back in court next month. She’s currently suing the family for an undisclosed amount.
