The Associates Press reports that the lawyers for Juanita Bynum are stalling divorce proceedings against her estranged husband, Bishop Thomas Weeks III.
The lawyers of Bishop Weeks said that they have been trying to get her side of the story for four months. But they say she keeps postponing her appointment.
Last month, according to the report, Bynum was ordered by a Superior Court judge in Gwinnett County to appear for a deposition. The attorneys for Thomas Weeks III waited until 3 p.m. for her to show up.
Weeks said in a statement that Bynum’s position must be heard, under oath. He said there have been much said in the press and much of it by her public relations’ personnel. One of Weeks’ lawyers, Randy Kessler, said he plans to again ask the court to compel her to appear at a later date and compensate his client for legal fees.
Bynum filed for divorce from Weeks on September 27, 2007. She cited “cruel treatment” and said the marriage was “irretrievably broken” about a month after he was accused him of attacking her in a hotel parking lot in Atlanta.
Weeks is facing criminal charges related to the alleged incident. He has also pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated assault and making terrorist threats.
