Justin Bieber Paparazzo Wins ‘Past Alleged Attacks’ Floodgates Ruling

Justin Bieber Loses Floodgates Ruling With Miami Paparazzo

Justin Bieber probably does need that jester right now.

A Miami paparazzo suing the singer and one of his bodyguards for battery and negligence, has reportedly just won a ruling which will allow his lawyer to question the Canadian star on previous alleged incidents involving him, his security, and paparazzi in an upcoming video deposition Bieber must attend this month.

Photog Jeffrey Binion’s lawsuit is based on his claim that one of Bieber’s bodyguards and a friend of the singer threatened and assaulted him before forcing him to delete images from his camera during an alleged confrontation.

The paparazzo alleges he was choked and that his memory card and camera were taken from him after he was spotted taking photos of the singer outside Miami’s Hit Factory Recording studio on June 5, 2013.

In his complaint [view here], Binion claims the 19-year-old ordered the alleged attack on him and was negligent in how it was allegedly carried out by his bodyguards.

Justin Bieber Paparazzo Wars

At the end of last year the singer’s lawyers filed a court request to seal the evidence Bieber gives in the January 23 video deposition.

They expressed concerns the video would be published to the public and that Binion’s lawyer would try to grill the teen about other alleged paparazzI attacks.

Now that worst case scenario has happened.

The deposition will not be limited to just Binion’s claims. According to TMZ, a judge has ruled the paparazzo’s lawyer, Russell S. Adler, will be able to widen the scope of the deposition to question Bieber about five, similar alleged paparazzi clashes.

The five incidents are: 1:) An alleged run-in with another Miami paparazzo just hours before Binion’s alleged encounter. 2:) An alleged attack on an Argentinian photographer as Bieber left Buenos Aires’ Ink nightclub on November 9. 3) An alleged beat down of a photographer in Hawaii on November 20. 4) An alleged attack on an Australian lensman during the last leg of the singer’s Believe world tour. 5) And an alleged beating of a paparazzo by a security team member at an IHOP eatery in Encino, CA. on December 18.

Adler intends to prove Bieber and his security team habitually deal with paparazzi with violent and/or in intimidating ways.

And he may just succeed.
