Erika’s continues to make a very serious situation much worse. Despite “unidentified sources” cough Erika cough leaking to to People Magazine today that her divorce is about Tom’s “cheating,” it’s abundantly clear that Erika was trying to jump ship to avoid severe personal consequences. Here is today’s latest mess that she made. And it sure ain’t pretty. My source for this story is @RonaldRichards on Twitter who is an attorney who tweets live updates daily on the events of the many cases involved in this fraudulent situation. Many thanks to him for his updates.
Erika Jayne Appears To Be In Contempt
On Monday, December 14th, Tom Girardi’s assets were frozen. Because California is a community property state, that meant that Erika Girardi’s assets were also frozen. One would assume that since she is married to a prominent lawyer, she would know this. In addition, the news of the freeze was sent to her divorce attorney stating that all property real or personal acquired during the marriage is considered community property and is hereby frozen.
On December 16th, Erika Girardi hired Vestiaire, a French company that sells second hand clothes online to sell off a numerous designer dresses from her wardrobe. The creditor who filed the motion to enforce a contempt order against Erika Girardi points out that at least one of the dresses involved was made by a company that was not in existence prior to Girardi’s marriage. And let’s face it, she has not been purchasing clothes from 20 years ago all of these years. We’ve literally seen her shopping for the latest styles for years.
Erika Girardi Sells Her Clothes Via A French Second Hand Company
Also, the choice of an obscure French company gives pause as to whether Erika was trying to move money out of the country. The legal team for two of the Lion Air flight victims assert this is further indication that the Girardis jointly and separately continue to siphon fiances away from the grasp of the families of victims of the plane crash.
Regarding the Indonesian Boeing aircraft crash of the Lion Air flight Two of the clients that hired Girardi have obtained new counsel (who appear to be working pro bono).These two clients claim that they never gave consent to settle with Boeing. It seems to have be alleged that to perpetuate the alleged fraud by Girardi, he settled cases without client consent to fund Erika Girardi’s lifestyle. Upon review of court dockets, no notices of settlement were found. And, the former Girardi Keese clients claim they never signed any formal settlement documents. Richards states that this type of criminal conduct is brazen. It is no different than committing identity theft of someone else’s account.
A New Emergency Hearing Set For Erika Girardi’s Conduct
This legal situation is moving more swiftly than any case I have ever followed. Today parties were back in court again. Today an emergency motion was made for a hearing against Erika Girardi. Basically, it seeks to stop the sale of community property and to seize any money made on the sale of the clothing by the courts, presumably for the two Lion Air clients. If it is found that that Erika willfully violated the court order freezing her assets, there could be other consequences. The hearing was set for 12/22/2020 at 1:00 p.m. The are also rumblings that petitions to freeze Erika’s personal assets (does she have any personal assets not acquired during the marriage?) may be in play. Edelson PC, the new legal team for the two Lion Air claimants appears to now be going after whatever personal assets that exist.
And last but not least, the cumulative amount of debt for Girardi Keese is $30,500,000 so far. As much as $20,000,000 was allegedly transferred to Erika”s LLC. Also, Erika shows up on the board of at least one of Tom Girardi’s LLCs. If I was going to place a bet, I’d bet Erika Girardi is going to go down with Tom on this and both could face federal charges that include prison time. Like I said, it’s a mess and is sure as hell ain’t pretty.
