Re: RHOBH Erika Jayne Dropped by Legal Team

No surprise!! Did she think she was going to walk away with clean hands. This woman is a user and only cares about herself. Hope they throw the book at her. Don't know why she is still on RHOBH. Andy Cohen just needs to create drama and his paycheck coming.

Re: RHOBH Erika Jayne Dropped by Legal Team

A lawyer suing Erika Girardi and her husband Tom Girardi said in a podcast interview Wednesday that he believes he can prove the reality star, who has not been charged with any crimes, was 'incredibly involved' in fraud allegedly perpetrated by her estranged husband.

 

Class-action attorney Jay Edelson, 48, said that if his lawsuit against Erika and Tom was successful her possessions could be seized and auctioned off.

 

Edelson's firm represents victims of the Lion Air Flight 610 crash in October 2018 and he filed a lawsuit last year in federal court accusing Tom Girardi, 82, of embezzling settlement funds from 'widows and orphans' to fund a lavish lifestyle chronicled by Erika, 49, on The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.

 

'We believe we're going to be able to prove that Erika was incredibly involved in not just the law firm, but also, he was loaning money to her company 10s of millions of dollars to her company,' Edelson said.

 

'And we think that money came from client funds. And we're going to look into all of that. And that's all going to be, you know, part of proof that we showed to a jury — that she was knee-deep in this fraud, and she can say, 'Oh, she didn't know anything about it.' And I think that's going be hard for to convince a jury of,' he added.

Re: RHOBH Erika Jayne Dropped by Legal Team

Erika Jayne's lawyers are back on the case two days after dropping her. The law firm had claimed the relationship of trust and confidence that is essential to a properly functioning attorney-client relationship had broken down and the relationship was irreparable.

 

It is unclear how Jayne and Dinsmore & Shohl have since patched up their relationship of what she knew about Girardi allegedly stealing money from his clients. She claimed she had no knowledge of his activities prior to her November 2020 divorce filing.

 

The ABC produced documentary pointed out that Jayne was listed as the Secretary of one of Girard's LLC and that money had been transferred into her company, EJ Global.

 

Sunny Hostin, who appeared in the film, reported that many of her luxury items were gifts to her from Girardi, making them separate property in the divorce.

 

A lot of these debts they owe in bankruptcy proceedings, they owe together. It's going to be hard for her to say she didn't know that anything was going on.
