Costner’s lawyers claim that Baumgartner has been evading these questions, including whether he understood the document before signing it.

Baumgartner received a payment of $1.5 million under the terms of the prenuptial agreement, but risked forfeiture of it by challenging the validity of the document.

Costner’s attorney argued, “Four months into this case and three months away from the start of the trial over the PMA’s legality, Christine refused to state all of her arguments regarding the PMA’s legality.” “The objections raised by him in an attempt not to disclose his arguments are frivolous. She says she doesn’t understand words like ‘understood’ or ‘conversation’, so she can’t respond to this search.’

The counsel further added, “She states that she does not know what is meant by common legal phrases such as ‘influential’ and ‘supersedes’, therefore she cannot respond to this finding.” “She refuses to acknowledge (or even denies) that the specific factual representations she and her attorney made in the PMA are accurate, for example, that she understood the PMA, that it was explained to her and she accepted that she understood the meaning and legal effect of the PMA.”
