Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop landed him in more trouble Monday as a fed-up Arkansas judge referred to it in ordering the president’s son to appear at his next child support hearing in person.
The dragged-out effort for Biden to take responsibility for the fourth of his five children, four-year-old daughter Navy Joan Roberts, born to Lunden Roberts, has included continued excuses for not being present during hearings. However, according to a report from the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, his absence will no longer be tolerated.
The determination came Monday during a virtual hearing where attorneys for Roberts and Biden sat before Independence County Circuit Judge Holly Meyer. During the call, the judge ruled, “From now on…I want both of your clients at every hearing I conduct. I will no longer allow us to excuse clients…because it is interfering with the progress of litigation, which is taking way too long to get over simple points.”
As previously reported, Roberts’ attorney Clinton Lancaster had contended Biden was “flaunting the dignity and authority of the court” after he had failed to submit documents requested in the child support lawsuit.
“This court should incarcerate the defendant in the Cleburne County Detention Center until he complies with this court’s orders,” Lancaster had argued Friday adding, “There is no valid excuse or justification for the defendant’s failure to provide the required disclosures as the court has granted every single protective order the defendant has asked for since the inception of this case…the defendant is playing games with this court.”

Biden’s time avoiding his legal problems may have finally come to an end with Meyer’s order that he should appear at an in-person hearing scheduled for May 1 at the Independence County courthouse in Batesville, Arkansas, and with it any chance at further dodging ownership of his infamous laptop.
The judge’s insistence that Biden be present came after his attorney Brent Langdon challenged expert witness Garrett Ziegler responsible for publishing the contents of the laptop on a publicly accessible and searchable database, over the device’s contents.
“There has never been, to my knowledge, an acknowledgment that this so-called laptop — he continuously calls it Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop-” Langdon said before Meyer interjected, “Well, let’s clear that issue up right now. Is it your client’s laptop or not?”
“Your honor, I’m not involved in all of that stuff,” he reportedly responded. “It’s not my client’s laptop as far as I know.”
“Is it your client’s position, you’re representing to this court, that it is not his laptop?” the judge challenged back.
“Your honor, I am not in a position to even begin to answer that question,” the attorney tried.
On top of the order for Biden to appear on May 1, Langdon’s effort to have a restraining order filed against Ziegler was declined.
