Arkansas Judge Holly Meyer has ripped into Hunter Biden and his lawyers for “sealing and redacting” his financial information as he faces his baby mama, Lunden Roberts, in court over payments for their four-year-old daughter, Navy Joan.
The judge presiding over Hunter Biden’s child support trial on Monday ripped into the First Son for ‘sealing and redacting’ his financial information.
‘The ability to redact is somewhat being abused,’ Judge Holly Meyer fumed. ‘I’m seeing a lot of things filed, especially by Mr. Biden’s counsel, sealing things, redacting things, that are not confidential.’
She suggested that lawyers for the First Son’s baby mama should subpoena a downtown Manhattan art gallery to find out exactly how much he has made from selling his art.
And the judge ordered the First Son to produce more financial documents to back his claim that he should be allowed to reduce the amount he gives Lunden Roberts each month.

Roberts, 32, and Biden, 53, came face to face for the first time since she gave birth to his daughter, Navy Joan, now four.
Though Biden occasionally looked across at her in the courtroom in Batesville, Arkansas, Roberts, who was supported in court by her parents Rob and Kimberly and her sister Randi Jo Bolin, avoided eye contact.
Neither party was called to testify as their legal teams sparred over disclosure requests before agreeing to take depositions in June ahead of a July trial.
Wearing a dark suit and tie, Biden listened intently but said nothing as Roberts’s attorney Clint Lancaster reeled off a list of items that he claimed Hunter’s team had not answered or explained properly in their discovery responses.
He said these included a line in Hunter’s tax returns referencing a $9 million investment in a Chinese entity which came with no further explanation.
‘He’s wrong, that’s not what it states,’ Biden’s hotshot DC lawyer Abbe Lowell shot back. The judge said the exchange was a perfect illustration of why Hunter had to be more forthcoming.
According to reports, Hunter Biden might be hiding at the White House to avoid legal papers from stripper mama Lunden Roberts.
