Usher's Ex-Wife

Shut Down

By Custody Judge ... Again

Usher
's ex-wife Tameka Raymond just lost ANOTHER round in her custody battle with the singer ... the judge shot down her request for a retrial ... but Tameka's not giving up.

As TMZ first reported, Tameka filed docs earlier this month demanding a second bite of the apple after Usher was awarded primary custody of the couple's two kids. Tameka claimed the judge is biased because she accepted campaign donations from Usher's lawyer.

But this week, the same judge rejected Tameka's motion -- claiming it's been public knowledge since 2008 that Usher's lawyer donated to her re-election campaign ... and if Tameka cared to look, she would have found out long before her custody trial.

As far as the judge is concerned ... Tameka's just a sore loser.

Sources close to Tameka tell TMZ she plans to appeal.

She looks like a bitch, no surprise she's behaving this way. Seems like I also remember reading about Usher's mother warning him about this loon. Too bad how it worked out since there are children, but at least he has custody.

What an arrogant azz this judge is. It's VERY CLEAR what took place here. She should have recused herself from this matter long ago. As for all these posters and the "goldigger" remarks, she simply wants her kids given back to her. Get it? Not for the the child support but because who wants their children completely taken from them? Some of these posters are scary stupid. And well, nasty. A bad combo.

What would be her ground for appeal the next time. In order to appeal a case you have to be able to prove some sort of error in finding of fact/conclusion of law. New evidence. But her entire reason to appeal was because of the donation from some time ago. So now what? You cannot just appeal "just because" and she should be appealing anyhow. She should be seeking a modification. If she keeps appealing all the way to States Supreme Court she will be let down because over 50% of appeals will not be overturned in regular courts and more than that are just thrown out at the highest level. If she keeps it up the judge is going to make her pay Ushers legal fees.

Usher has the judge in his pocket. It is sad he got custody ONLY because he has money.
