Can’t Catch A Break: Judge Refuses To Step Down In BBW Royce Reed Custody Case

Royce Reed will have her day in court against her ex Dwight Howard – and unfortunately for her it may not go in her favor. 

Last month Basketball Wives’ Royce Reed petitioned to have the judge in her child custody case removed on the grounds of a conflict of interest and bias toward her child’s father NBA star Dwight Howard. The judge has now since responded and refuses to step down.

TMZ reports the update:

Dwight filed docs in response, defending Shea’s position as the arbiter in their custody case — claiming the only reason Reed perceives a bias is because she’s intolerable in court … “making faces, spinning around in a chair, laughing” … and even “storming out of the courtroom.”

This week, the judge refused to remove himself from the case. It’s unclear why.

Royce’s attorney Jane Carey tells TMZ, “We believe that the judge’s ruling is erroneous and that it does not conform to the governing case law.” We’re told Reed plans to take her case to the Supreme Court.
