“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks got a court order saying she has to sit in for a deposition within 45 days, according to a report.
RadarOnline says the matter has to do with the 2012 case involving her and former friend Angela Stanton.
In a defamation lawsuit, Parks claims Stanton made false statements in her e-book “Lies of a Real Housewife.” Stanton claimed that Parks ran a “criminal enterprise,” that included auto title fraud, and she made other allegations.
And now, Stanton’s attorneys are attempting to get Parks to sit in for a deposition to reveal what she knows. The attorneys said that starting on Nov. 13, 2013, they attempted to “work with Parks, by and through her counsel, on numerous occasions to schedule her deposition, but [have] met with nothing but excuses, refusals and empty promises.”
And they both said Parks has demonstrated a “refusal to participate in good faith in the discovery process.”
According to Radar, the judge said Parks has to take part in a deposition by August 3.
Stanton also alleged “there was criminal activity involved in our relationship,” according to Radar. The activity involved “fraudulent bank accounts, insurance checks, fake IDs, chop shops, stolen cars, fraudulent titles, fraudulent registration cards.”
Parks has not been charged with anything, and there is no ongoing investigation into the matter.
This comes as Parks’ husband, Apollo Nida, is to face sentencing after he pleaded guilty on different fraud charges.
While admitting his guilty, Nida claimed he suffered a nervous breakdown in trying to maintain his status on as husband to Parks. “‘I take full responsibility for my actions. It was a dumb situation I put myself in,” he said, according to MailOnline. “I got sucked in and engulfed and lost sight of things,” he also said in early May.
He continued: “It’s my fault at the end of the day.”
