Decide Denies Movement To Elevate Gag Order Off Of Tory Lanez In Megan Thee Stallion Case (Unique)
TSR Exclusive: Tory Lanez remains silent on anything involving Megan Thee Stallion after a judge today denied his attorney’s motion to overturn her client’s gag order.
The motion was filed late last month when Tory’s attorney asked the judge to amend the terms of the protection order against him so that he could respond publicly to Megan and discuss the case, particularly new evidence to support his innocence, his team says.
Tory also wants to be able to defend himself publicly against the case. At the time the motion was filed, Megan tweeted a series of tweets about him after a false report indicated she dropped the assault charges against him.
Just a day after that public spat on social media, Tory’s agent said prosecutors had provided Tory’s attorney with evidence and testimony that “directly contradict Megan’s testimony.” One of that evidence is bullet residue.
“Given the recent tweets from (Megan) and the public eye on the matter, Mr. Peterson is asking the court to amend the protection order in relation to him, his attorney and / or his agents,” said a representative from Tory.
However, the judge said he wanted to keep the case fair and suggested that Tory’s attorney Shawn Holley file a separate motion to have the gag order removed from her so she could speak to the media on Tory’s behalf.
This was in response to Megan’s attorney being able to speak about the case. To ensure a level playing field, Holley hopes to do the same.
“We just want a fair trial, which is difficult when Ms. Pete and her lawyer are able to discuss the evidence in the case, but we cannot refute what she said publicly because of the protection order,” Holley said.
She specifically wants to be able to discuss the aforementioned evidence that could allegedly prove Tory’s innocence, including gunshot residue that “implies others,” but due to the protection warrant filed against him back in November 2020, he cannot provide the evidence discuss publicly believing it is unfair that Megan can say what she wants about him on social media without court recourse.
The protection order prevents Tory from having contact with Megan – not even on social media.
“The inflammatory information carried in Megan P’s tweets was quickly picked up by mainstream media publications. Due to the restrictions placed on Mr. Peterson and his attorney under the protection order, Mr. Peterson was unable to respond to Megan P’s inflammatory statements to make his own clarifying statements, ”his representative said.
All of this is described in the 26-page application sent to The Shade Room last month. As you know, Tory pleaded not guilty in a crime case accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in July 2020 in the Hollywood Hills.
