Howards attorney are correct in there request to keep U.S. attorneys out. This is the Bahama courts, they are not licensed in the Bahamas, so why are they there. The Lordship did the right thing. Go Howard K Stern.

Yeah...Who cares about blood relation? Adopted children are just as well loved...It does matter very much who is raising the child and I wouldn't want Virgie Arthur anywhere near me or my children!

I didnt hear if Howards Us Attorneys were in the court room.

This hearing was for the DNA so Virgie isnt really in the mix anyways Right?
Shouldnt it only be Howard and Larry?

They should have thrown out that old bag, Virgie too. That crusty Texas bunch deserved to be booted. Now they are not under the gag ruling so they blow their brains to TMZ for probably what they are in it for.......MONEY!

Krista Barth is the only honorable lawyer involed in litigating the case.

Too much!    

Being a blood relative has NOTHING to do with being a good candidate to raise a child.
Go back to Texas...BUH-BYE

It seems like HK$ has the whole bahamas on his side. His lawyers wanted Virgies layers out, you have to wonder why is this man always trynig to be so secretive. His whole leagal team is fishy. As far as Larry gettind rid of Depra Opri, I personally think it was a bad idea, but only time will tell. Debra was very out spoken and it appeared she wanted to everything right, and as we know HKS team is shady and do everything shady, so I can see Larry's desperation to accepting a deal by HK$. I'm sure HK$ told him to get rid of her and we can do business. I would definately want Debra representing me if I ever get into any jam, she seems very determined to get me out of it

You can look at it this way, the Bahamas, don't like United States Lawyers. In a way they slap us "The United States "in the face.
Yet, they left the door open for the American Lawyers to be able to tell us what is going on. I guess they didn't think about the United States Lawyer's not be under the gag order, since they got kick out of the court room. You know their clients have to talk to their lawyers in the United States.

Just because Virgie is blood doesn't mean she is the one to raise Dannilynn. I really believe if the baby was in any danger, she would have been taken away from Howard a long time ago. Blood relatives aren't always the best choice to raise a child.

From what has been reported in the press is that Virgie has served with the police department for 28 years. Also what has been in the press is that Virgie, Larry and ANS all had a great relationship until drugs and HKS got in the mix.

Virgie raised Anna - how did that turn out?? Anna was an addict be4 meeting HKS so not buying the allegations that pushed drugs on her.

So scared for Dannielyn, she may be beaten, drop out of 8th grade and end up a stripper if Vergie gets her
