Justin Bieber has lost an appeal to avoid being deposed and questioned about an attack on photographer Jeffrey Binion, who is suing the star for allegedly instructing his bodyguard to attack him and steal his camera in Miami last June.
Justin Bieber will be deposed and questioned about an attack on a photographer.
The 'Baby' hitmaker, who is being sued for allegedly instructing his bodyguard to attack Jeffrey Binion and take his camera after he took photographers of the 19-year-old star outside a recording studio in Miami last June, had tried to block the paparazzo's lawyers from interviewing him about the incident but a judge dismissed his appeal, according to documents filed in the city's Third District Court of Appeal last Tuesday (11.02.14).
A source told PEOPLE.com: ''Miami Judge Sarah Zabel initially denied Bieber's requests to stop Binion's lawyers from deposing him and asking questions about other incidents involving him and his varied bodyguards' aggressive behaviour.
''Although Bieber's lawyers appealed the judge's rulings, the appeal was denied. Bieber can no longer hide. Binion's lawyers are waiting for a deposition date to be set in Miami.''
The judge also denied the Canadian star's request to stop the public's right to view his scheduled videotaped deposition.
Justin's attorney Howard Weitzman claims the photographer's lawsuit is ''totally without merit.''
The singer's latest legal setback comes shortly before he is set to appear in court in Miami on March 3, after being charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving without a valid driver's licence last month.
He is also scheduled to appear in court in Toronto, Canada on March 10 after being charged with assaulting a limousine driver on December 30.
