Kate Asks Judge to Throw Book at Jon

10/5/2009 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kate Gosselin has filed legal papers in a Pennsylvania court this morning to force her estranged hubby Jon Gosselin to return the $230,000 he took out of their joint bank account ... and to have him cited for contempt for good measure.

Kate claims Jon raided their joint account, leaving her with only $1,000.

Kate's lawyer, Mark Momjian, tells TMZ he filed the papers this morning and noted to the judge that Jon allegedly violated an order prohibiting him from taking anything out of the account without Kate's sign-off.

Momjian claims Jon and his lawyer, Mark Heller, have harassed Kate with frivolous legal maneuvers and wants the judge to nail her estranged hubby with financial sanctions.

And there's this ... Heller, who is not a member of the Pennsylvania bar, is asking the judge for special permission to rep Jon in this case. Momjian says he filed papers opposing that move, on grounds Heller effectively lied to the court by failing to mention -- as he's required to do -- that he was suspended by the New York bar for a variety of misdeeds. Oops.

The judge has been asked to make a ruling, stat.

This guy gets in front of any camera that will film him and tell us how much he loves his children and that he'd do anything for them. Then he turns around and stops his wife from working, thereby taking food and housing from them. I guess it's all about Jon....the children be dammed.

Good for Kate!! Jon needs to grow up and quit walking around with a cig hanging out of his mouth, great example for his children. Kate should have it put in her divorce papers that Jon is not allowed to smoke around his children.

Now I know why Kate bosses Jon around on the show. What kind of idiot gets a lawyer that is not licensed in his own state?

Jon has turned out to be quite a villain. My view of Kate has changed for the better.

Jon's behavior is inexcusable; it is so obvious he is only looking out for his own best interests; certainly not his children's as he claims. Way to go Jon; why don't you take another trip to Paris with your girlfriend.

They are like a real life version of Everybody Loves Raymond. In both cases the husband is a complete moron and the wife is a raging witch!

Chris Brown is so last Year    

AWESOME! its about time she gives it to him, the dirt-bag, ugo that he is. Cheating, lying and now stealing too?? That is just pathetic, even for him. I liked the both of them okay on tv, her a bit better, she was overpowering at times, but its because they had a lot of responsibility and he acted like a child. Now I have respect for her and none for him. Did you check out the young ugly one he's dating now? Yikes, he certainly when down a peg from Kate on that choice.
You go girl!
