Angelina Jolie has officially lost her battle to remove the judge from her bitter divorce proceedings with ex Brad Pitt, court documents obtained by show.

Jolie had previously claimed that Judge John W. Ouderkirk – who married the couple at their lavish French wedding in 2014 – failed to disclose ‘ongoing business and professional relationships’ that he had with Pitt’s legal team.

The actress claimed she didn’t think it was ‘fair’ to have him preside over the ongoing four-year divorce battle.


Having the Judge that married you preside over your divorce?  I’ve never heard of such a thing.  A very unusual situation indeed and I can certainly understand Jolie’s legal team’s concern.  It would be interesting to know more about the specific nature of Pitt’s legal team’s relationship with the Judge.
