RHOBH star Diana Jenkins asks judge to help find ‘critical’ information for lawsuit

Diana Jenkins asks a judge to speed up proceedings as she tries to “expose” the “fake Instagram accounts” used to send racist messages to the teenage son of her “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” co-star. Jenkins tries to clear her name after “RHOBH” fans accused her of paying for bots to harass Garcelle Beauvais’ son as part of an ongoing feud between the two.

The Bravo reality TV star filed a lawsuit in September 2022 against whoever was responsible for sending the messages. But her lawyers admit in court files that they do not have the identities of the suspects in the case. On September 16, 2022, a judge was asked to expedite the discovery of the case so that Jenkins’ lawyers can find out who is behind the “bot” accounts, court documents obtained by pleasemynews Show.

Jenkins filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles County Court on Sept. 8. A hearing was scheduled for Oct. 27 for her lawyers to argue for permission to use the discovery process to attempt to “unmask” the defendants. But they request in the new application that the hearing be held the week of September 19 or a date earlier than October 27.

“This case is about blatant conduct: using fake Instagram accounts to send racist and bullying messages to a 14-year-old child, designed so that people would conclude and also conclude that Plaintiff Sanela Jenkins a/k/a Diana Jenkins was responsible Jenkins’ attorneys — Kristina Enns, Lily North, Erik Connolly and Christopher Letkewicz of the firm of Benesch, Friedlander, Coplan & Aronoff LLP — wrote. “Until now, the perpetrator has remained anonymous, which is why Ms. Jenkins has sued him/her as ‘John Doe’ (‘Defendant’). But Ms. Jenkins is trying to expose him/her.”

The attorneys added: “Mrs. Jenkins is requesting permission to immediately make a targeted and limited third party discovery so that she can discover the defendant’s true identity and serve the subpoena to bring him or her into this case.”

Jenkins’ attorneys wrote in the new filing: “This application has been made on the basis that Ms. Jenkins does not know the identity of the anonymous defendant, and that she is absent due to limited and limited discovery by a non-party Ms. Jenkins cannot serve the subpoena Ms. Jenkins has filed a petition for leave to obtain the requested discovery, but the first available hearing date is not until October 27, 2022.

They added: “That is why Ms. Jenkins is making this ex parte application to bring forward the trial date at her request so that she can immediately begin the discovery necessary to identify the accused, rather than waiting more than a month for the currently noted date of the movement.”

The motion states that they have not been able to identify the person or persons behind the bills through their own investigation. “The discovery Ms. Jenkins seeks is critical to her ability to identify and name the defendant in this lawsuit. Each passing day could damage Ms. Jenkins’ ability to identify the suspect and unnecessarily delay Ms. Jenkins’ efforts to hold the perpetrator of this plan accountable,” the lawyers wrote in the motion.

According to the motion, Jenkins’ attorneys have conducted “thorough investigation and investigation” to try to identify the defendant or defendants. According to the lawsuit, the Instagram accounts do not appear to be connected to real people and have fake names and photos.

“Despite this diligent and coordinated investigation, the suspect’s identity remains in the shadows, protected by fake public Instagram profiles. With a subpoena, Ms. Jenkins can obtain non-public information to expose the suspect. This information may include the real name of the person who created the Instagram accounts, his/her email address and/or the IP addresses he/she used when creating the accounts and sending the harassing messages ,” wrote her lawyers.

According to the motion, “To the extent that this deception is multi-layered, such as using a fake name or contact information to create fake Instagram accounts, additional subpoenas may be required. As such, Ms. Jenkins must make a customized third-party discovery.” to reveal the defendant’s true identity and has filed the underlying motion to do just that.”

The motion adds: “Mrs. Jenkins is bringing this filing so she can immediately begin the discovery necessary to establish the identity of the defendant. Until the identity of the defendant is unmasked, she cannot serve the subpoena or otherwise begin …delaying the hearing on the motion to the earliest available, regularly scheduled hearing date, more than a month away, in late October, could significantly reduce Ms. Jenkins’ ability to collect much-needed discoveries.”
