MIAMI (AP) — A Florida judge has ordered singer Justin Bieber to sit down for a deposition within the next 30 days or face the threat of being arrested and hauled into court.
Circuit Judge Jerald Bagley issued the order on Wednesday in Miami.
The order compels Bieber to sit for a deposition for a lawsuit filed by a photographer who got into an altercation with one of the singer’s bodyguards two years ago in Miami Beach.
The photographer’s attorney says he has been unable to get Bieber to sit for the deposition. Attorney Mark DiCowden says Bieber isn’t entitled to any special treatment just because he’s a celebrity.
Bieber’s attorney, John Atkinson, didn’t’ immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
