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 has an oddly-shaped profile. That's all I could notice in that picture.

I think Tameka has a legitimate appeal the judge should have recused herself. Knowing that she was presiding over a case where one of the lawyers donated money to her re election. that is conflict of intrest if i ever herd it.

The judge should have recused herself from this trial, no matter who's on trial. Retrial!

She's just mad because she lost $$$$

She said she HAD to have that credit card of Usher's back because she needed it for her job... what job? And I'm sorry ANYONE else getting divorced you open cards in your own name on your own credit once it's filed!

Maybe (and I say this in kindness) she should take a while to mourn the child she just lost and this is a good thing!

Isn`t that conflict of interest though. If Usher has donated to her election campaign, she has no business presiding over any matter in which he is involved.

Okay, I just re-read it, it is Usher`s lawyer, not Usher himself. But it is still conflict of interest. The lawyer should have not been allowed to represent Usher.

She's wasting her time, she should be out looking for another rapper or basketball player to have a bunch of kids with!

All I will say is if a mother loses custody of her kids then something is seriously wrong with her, 99.9% the mother always gets custody even in cases where the dad is better off than the mom.

if it was public record regarding his lawyer...one could interpret the ex was ok with the presiding judge and to challenge the judge now (after unfavorable decision) is not a ground for appeal...

I haven't followed the facts of the case, so I don't know who is the better parent, but there does seem to be a legitimate reason to claim conflict of interest.

So how's Usher going to parent when he's always on tour. This is just an attack on her, and then he'll file to reduce child support.

The judges are misogynistic. Including women judges. See Judge Sandra Ikuta, (Bush appointment) at the "News" page at Familylawcourts.com Judge Ikuta have a problem with the police behavior after a deputy shot his wife in the face at point-blank range, while the other cops let her bleed out...and attacked the woman's parents.

Click the links. This judge has a lifetime appointment and her depraved attitude is scary.
