A Miami-Dade County judge recently “recommended” that Miami Heat star LeBron James‘ mom fly a private jet to get to the city on time for a court-mandated mediation!
The ”recommendation” from Circuit Court Judge Ellen Leesfield came after Gloria James missed two mediation sessions in the case brought against her by a Fontainebleau Miami Beach valet who claims she assaulted him while she waited for her car at the resort in April 2011.
“Ms. James has had a hard time making the sessions,” said Robert Stok, valet Rock Feller Sorel‘s lawyer, “and her excuse was that she couldn’t get a regular plane to make it to Miami on time. So, the judge tried to help her get here.”
The judge also ordered the 44-year-old James to be in Miami two days before a scheduled mediation. The judge also fined James $2,500 for wasting everbody’s time – twice.
Guess what? It worked!
The hot-to-trot mom made the Oct. 10 mediation, and now a settlement with Sorel is within reach!
“Everybody is just trying to resolve this matter,” Stok said.
Gloria James was sentenced to community service to settle the criminal charges in the drunken assault. The valet sued her two days after the incident.
