The Arkansas city stuck in a legal dispute with Josh Duggar is pulling out all of the stops to silence him, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.
According to new documents filed in Josh's privacy lawsuit, the city of Springdale asked a judge for a protective order that would block the ex-reality star,from requesting any more discovery materials in the case.
The move comes just days after the city begged a judge to dismiss the case entirely.
In the new paperwork, Springdale claimed that Josh sued the city – along with Washington County, Arkansas – back in March, and that the former TV star has taken “no action” since.
But recently, the city claimed Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar’s oldest son “served interrogatories and requests for production of documents on the City.”
In the new docs, Springdale said a protective order would allow them to be free from Josh’s requests while a judge votes on their previous motion to dismiss the case.
What’s more is the city slammed Josh’s lawsuit as a whole. Springdale – the town where the Duggar family’s massive compound sits in Arkansas – claimed Josh is trying to trick the judge in the case. The city claimed this new lawsuit is almost identical to the one Josh filed a year ago that was ultimately tossed out.
“The only new claim that Joshua Duggar brings in the instant case is a claim for false light invasion of privacy. Nonetheless, all of the claims in the complaint in Duggar 1 are based upon the same events and subject matter as the claims in the case at bar,” the document stated.
Additionally, Springdale claimed Josh intentionally left out a vital piece of information in this new lawsuit.
"As such, Joshua Duggar simply deleted the fact from his current complaint that an article detailing his role in molesting his family members had already been published prior to the City’s release of its FOIA response," the city alleged.
As Radar readers know, Anna Duggar’s husband claimed he suffers from “emotional distress” because of the release of police records showing he molested five minors, including his sisters, years ago.
The judge has yet to make a ruling in the case.
