The hearing has been has been postponed several times and is a source of controversy between hostile stars.
As The Sun previously reported, Briana’s attorney offer their email exchange discuss adjournment in court papers.
The alleged email from Kailyn attorney Nicole Haff to Marc Randazza sent on December 15 reads: “We are a pretty laid-back office and normally we grant these things… However , this is an unusual situation and your client can ask the court for an adjournment. Miss Lowry disagrees.”
Nicole explains how Kailyn’s ex and third baby dad Chris Lopez, where he admitted to spending time with Briana in Miami, was executed on November 2.
But Marc didn’t file it until the night before Thanksgiving because “probably very sadly” Kailyn pre-holiday.
She later wrote that Briana had informed Kail via social media that she was sending her a “surprise”.
The email continued: “The surprise was a treadmill. When reading the message, a reasonable reader would view it as your customer calling my customer overweight.
“If your client wants my client’s support, she should stop fighting her and perhaps issue an apology for the very statements she made that are at the heart of the lawsuit. this.”
He replied in the email: “Treadmill, I have nothing to do with it. That seems like an incredibly expensive thing to send someone as an insult. If Miss Lowry doesn’t want to, I can lose a few pounds on my own.”
In the resume application, Marc tore apart Kailyn and her attorney for refusing to approve his continuation.
The filing read Chris’ statement: “Thereafter, Plaintiff’s attorney made the leap that it was filed on November 24th as an attempt to upset Plaintiff. This simply makes no sense. There is nothing in the affidavit that a reasonable person would consider ‘nasty’.
“The timing is an unfortunate result of incompetence, but hardly an evil plot to upset Mrs. Lowry. There is no reason to deny a reasonable request for continuation because a claimant party was upset with the filing of the affidavit.
“This is Plaintiff acting in defiance, and the attorneys are not insisting on being a buffer between a client’s defiant behavior and professional conduct.”
He then brought up the treadmill and Kailyn’s attorney insisted Briana was referring to her client as “overweight.”
Marc continued in the profile: “Seriously? This degree of pettiness and behavior in the schoolyard should find its way into the CLE of how and why modern law practice is so uncivilized.
“This should have been embarrassing to commit to in writing. The reason that Plaintiffs’ attorneys will not agree to a reasonable continuation is because one party believes a gift from the other party is part of a wound on their respective waists.
“Inattention is not a reason to refuse a reasonable request for professional courtesy.”
In December, Kailyn posted about getting a treadmill.
She wrote on Instagram: “Dog room update: @BrianaSoto thank you so much for the treadmill. My dogs will love it and I’m lazy so now I don’t have to walk them myself.”
