Erika Jayne is once again asking the court to remove attorney Ronald Richards from overseeing Tom Girardi’s bankruptcy case.
According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has officially filed an appeal after the court previously shut down her motion to remove Richards from the case.
Erika is pleading with the judge to look re-review his decision to keep Richards on the case. At the moment, Erika facing numerous legal actions, including a $25 million lawsuit, stemming from her estranged husband’s alleged financial crimes.
The once-respected lawyer is accused of embezzling millions of his former clients’ settlement money to fund his and Erika’s lavish lifestyle.
Earlier this year, Girardi and his law firm, Girardi Keese, were forced into Chapter 7 bankruptcy. As a result, the court appointed a trustee to review and take over control of Tom’s finances to determine the best way to pay back his creditors.
On Twitter, Erika has continued to accuse Richards of harassment with his never-ending posts about the case. She also accused Richards of having a conflict of interest due to him representing another company owed money that is owed money from Tom.
The judge previously shut down Erika’s plea and denied her motion to remove Richards from the case.
Now, Erika is appealing the decision and taking the issues to the higher court. As a result, the bankruptcy investigation could be put on pause until the court makes a final decision on Richards’ role in the case.
Meanwhile, Richards has been tweeting up a storm about Erika and is accusing her of having “unlimited funs” to “delay the case and cost the victims a lot of money.”
“What the public doesn’t realize, @erikajayne has a massive PR machine with fake bots and paid persons working our feed. Also, she has a slush account with- apparently, unlimited funds to file meritless motions, delay the case, and cost the victims a lot of money in delay/fees,” Richards’ tweeted.
He continued, “Here is the stunning factoid of the day: We cannot locate a singer, “mactress” or actress who has lost more money from 2008 to 2018 then @erikajayne. To be exact, she reported from 2008 to 2014 & 2017 to 2018 losses of ($24,145,754.00). This is why CA says she has no real biz.”
Richards then made Erika an offer after she suggested that he was “unraveling” and “needs Lexapro.”
“Obviously, she is taking too much of it….. Here is our offer: For each $100k she voluntarily returns of the $25M of her personal expenses that were paid by GK, we will add 10%, if returned within ten days,” he said.
