Karma is certainly a bitch. After threatening to start revealing Dina’s secrets and boasting she has nothing to hide it looks like Jacqueline Laurita wasn’t being totally honest. Over the past few years, Jacqueline and Chris have been dealing with a bankruptcy case over their failed clothing company Signature Clothing. The Laurita’s, along with Chris’s brother Joseph Laurita and his wife Adeline, are being accused of knowing that the company was going under and using the money for personal use to defraud their creditors. The Trustee of the Bankruptcy case is sueing them for just under $8 million dollars and now it looks like any hopes of settling the case quickly are out the window because Jacqueline and Chris have been dropped by their legal team for not paying!
Radar Online has obtained documents filed with the court on July 16 which reveal that the Laurita’s legal team, Troutman and Sanders LLP, is withdrawing themselves from the case due to lack of payment.
The Lauritas have failed to comply with their agreement and obligations under the Engagement Letter with respect to expenses and fees owed to Troutman Sanders in connection to the Laurita Adversary Proceedings,” the filing reads.
Troutman Sanders has submitted numerous invoices to the Lauritas since the commencement of this representation, and while it has received partial payments in the past, it is currently owed a significant amount of money for past statements.
