There is a victory in the Big Apple!
Sonja Morgan, star of The Real Housewives of New York, has won a legal battle over an unpaid bill to her bankruptcy lawyers. On the RHONY, we have seen Sonja deal with filing for bankruptcy and all that it entails. She keeps fighting and we have watched her come a long way on this journey. However; she has won one of the battles. Slowly but surely, Sonja keeps making her way through all of these hurdles. Life is looking up for Sonjarita!
According to The Blast, “Sonja Morgan scored a victory in the legal battle with her ex-bankruptcy lawyers over an unpaid bill.” The law firm of Browne George Ross LLP sued her in New York court over the $66,330.34 that was awarded to them after Sonja went through bankruptcy court. Sonja had originally owed them almost $2 million dollars, but then the number was reduced to $66,000. Last month the New York judge dismissed the law firm’s entire complaint against Sonja! The documents state that the court lacks jurisdiction over the matter, saying any dispute over anything related to the bankruptcy case needs to be handled in that court. The judge said it would be inappropriate for him to make any decisions on this matter and dismissed the entire case entirely!
Sonja doesn’t have to worry about that now, however; she is still facing a separate lawsuit for a whopping $350,000 dollars from other lawyers who worked on her bankruptcy.
Yikes! I feel bad that Sonja has so many legal battles that she has to deal with. I also feel for her that she’s going through hard financial times. However; Sonja is the straw that stirs the drink! She always comes out on top. She will get through this, too. Sonja has to keep fighting. This season of RHONY has been super dramatic and entertaining. I’m excited for the reunion. Stay tunes, loves!
