Blac Chyna Claims Judge in Kardashian-Jenner Defamation Case Was 'Undeniably Hostile & Extremely Biased'

Blac Chyna is speaking out against the judge who oversaw her case against the Kardashian-Jenner family.

According to court docs obtained by People, the 33-year-old reality star has issued a peremptory challenge against Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Gregory W. Alarcon.

In the filing, she claimed the judge “exhibited an ‘undeniably hostile and extremely biased’ attitude towards her and [her attorney] Ms. [Lynne] Ciani since April 19 and April 20, 2022.”

She went on to say that this alleged bias had an impact on several other parts of the case, including “the jury making ‘key liability verdicts in her favor’” as well as her being “denied due process with regard to the jury instructions and special verdict form.”

While Chyna‘s filing has yet to be processed, the Kardashian-Jenner family’s legal team has already responded. Their attorney, Michael G. Rhode, filed a 20-page opposition on Monday, stating that Chyna and her attorney “nonetheless proceeded without complaint as Judge Alarcon presided over a 10-day trial” despite her apparent problems with him.

The document continues, “In the days and weeks that followed, [Chyna] and her counsel had ample time to raise her completely misguided allegations about Judge Alarcon‘s impartiality, along with numerous opportunities to brief evidentiary issues, jury instructions, and the special verdict form.”

“Indeed, Judge Alarcon explicitly invited Ms. Ciani to brief issues relating to jury instructions and evidentiary issues, such as sustained objections for hearsay and lack of authenticity, which she never did,” the record adds. “Instead, Ms. Ciani first “raised several of the [issues discussed in her statement of disqualification] in a written filing after the jury had begun deliberating.”

Michael went on to say that Chyna‘s “dissatisfaction with the Court’s ordinary exercise of its discretion in overseeing trial is irrelevant to Judge Alarcon‘s capacity for impartiality in a future trial.” The Kardashian-Jenner‘s legal team requested that Chyna‘s “statement of disqualification be stricken, that her request for disqualification be denied, and that Ms. Ciani be sanctioned in an amount to be determined in [the family's] separately served noticed motion.”

Chyna filed a $100 million lawsuit against members of the Kardashian-Jenner family in connection to the cancellation of her E! reality series Rob and Chyna.
