Another one bites the dust.
Erika Jayne is celebrating another victory after she’s dismissed from a lawsuit over attorney’s fees.
The Bravoleb continued to celebrate her latest legal victory on social media. On Wednesday, Erika shared an article covering her latest legal win on Instagram.
“Another one,” Erika wrote. On her Instagram Story, Erika shared the same post with Queen’s Another One Bites the Dust playing alongside of it.
Erika’s friend and one of her fiercest supporters, Dorit Kemsley, commented: “GREAT NEWS.” To date, no other RHOBH castmembers have commented on Erika’s post.
According to an article from Los Angeles Magazine, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Richard L. Fruin dismissed the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star from a lawsuit brought against her and estranged husband Tom Girardi by attorneys Philip R. Sheldon and Robert P. Finn, as well as their law firms, over attorney fees in a shared toxic chemical legal case.
On Friday, September 16, Judge Fruin signed a judgment in favor of the Pretty Mess singer, which removed her from the case brought on by Sheldon, Finn, and their respective law firms. Judge Fruin found that the reality TV star had no “actual knowledge” of any breach of duty by her husband or his now-defunct law firm, Girardi Keese.
Sheldon and Finn allege that in 2008 and 2009, their law firms teamed up with Girardi Keese in a lawsuit over “exposure to toxic chemicals emanating from cement manufacturing facilities in California.”
The case settled for $31 million with an agreement that Girardi Keese would disburse their portion of the shared attorney’s fees to Sheldon and Finn; however, Tom’s law firm allegedly failed to do so. Sheldon and Finn filed a lawsuit over those owed fees in December 2020. They are seeking $900k plus punitive damages.
Sheldon and Finn have dropped their lawsuit against Erika’s company, EJ Global LLC.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm on Bravo.
