Someone on Reddit has a lot of time on her hands and I am here. for. it! Finally a comprehensive list of the entire Erika Jayne timeline. The three part posts lists everything Erika Girardi has said since she started the show which is very different from her latest bullshit. The first post say exactly what she said about Tom’s accident. And there are a lot more lawsuits than I was aware of. Click Here for previous Erika Girardi posts.
Please click here to see the complete Erika Girardi timeline part one. Below is the part about the car accident in 2016. But you should really read the whole thing.
Aug 1-3 – filming for S8 Ep 5 Erika meets with Kyle and Mikey after the Tokyo trip to tell them that Tom was in a car accident and broke his ankle.
To Kyle, she says he will need a little surgery to have it put back together. Says he’ll be fine, calls him a “big brat”. Kyle asks about the accident, Erika assures her “he’s okay, car’s not okay, he’s fine.”
She then meets with Mikey in the Pretty Mess Clubhouse and tells him that Tom was in a car accident, broke his ankle, but will be fine. Says he’s okay.
Aug 4-10 – filming for S8 Ep 6,7,8 Erika joins Dorit to rent PK a car for his birthday, complains about how Tom is acting. “…honey, when they get hurt a little bit, it’s like infants, I’m like who is this person?”
Later, Erika joins Kyle for a shopping trip at Boulmiche, and tells her that Tom is “doing great, his stitches will be out soon and he will be back at the office.” In her confessional, she says she’s enjoyed taking care of him.
Erika Girardi Part Two
On to Part Two of the Erika Giradi breakdown. Click here for the full post. It is very long and very detailed. It’s also quite incriminating regarding Erika Jayne’s coverup. It covers from everything that happened from 2018 up to just before filming for S11, which started in late Oct 2020. In other words this is season 9 and 10.
Highlights below in case like Kyle and Dorit you can’t read longform stories. 🙂
Feb 9, 2018– LOCKHEED MARTIN LAWSUIT A 9TH Circuit judge orders that Tom must open his books for review about what happened to the $130 Million in settlement funds.
Apr 27, 2018 – LOCKHEED MARTIN LAWSUIT Case is dismissed (the statute of limitations had passed. though a visiting judge had a strong opinion about the matter, asking “Does he get a free pass because he’s been able to hide it for 20 years? Does that make sense?” interestingly, you can watch the arguments here, on YouTube, which were publicly posted all the way back in 2018. Keep the name Joseph Ruigomez in your mind, because he’s a burn victim at the heart of this case – he has been suing Tom since 2010 trying to get his settlement money. When this lawsuit comes back to life, it will be named RUIGOMEZ LAWSUIT in this timeline.
Edited to add the argument that the victims attorney made about the fact that statute of limitations is not applicaable and the opposing attorney (for Girardi) made that all the former appeals have been denied and this one should also be. And sadly it was.
June 1 ,2018
No cognitive issues here, well after the accident.
Aug 3, 2018 – filming for S9 Ep1 Dorit goes to the Pasadena mansion and tells Erika that she and PK were robbed and they got every single luxury item Dorit owned, all jewelry all handbags. Erika commiserates and says that she and Tom have been robbed five times.
Aug 30, 2018 – SM LOAN The lender from the April 1 2016 loan is getting cranky, so Tom makes payment arrangements to pay them $500,000 per month plus interest to clear the balance, starting Oct 1 2018, ending in September 2019. They are not aware that Tom has already defaulted on another loan with Law Finance Group, nor that he’s about to miss his first payment.
Things Get A Lot Worse For Erika Girardi in 2019
Apr 24, 2019 – LFG LAWSUIT Tom appears in court at the LFG asset attachment hearing. LFG files paperwork that claims that Tom is “actively soliciting more than $30 million in additional loans” and “funneling millions of dollars” to someone else, whose name is redacted, “through loans to her company.”. The tabloids pick up on this, obviously, and assume that LFG redacted Erika’s name. They reach an agreement that he will pay them $10 million on June 7, and a further $6 million on July 7.
Jun 5, 2019 – filming for S9 Reunion During the filming of the RHOBH S9 reunion Andy asks an audience question about whether the ladies are using the dog drama to cover up their own legal issues. Directs a question to Erika, who gets heated and claims that the issue is “resolved and they apologized”, indicating that all lawsuits have been resolved, and LFG and Stillwell both apologized for suing, which is not true.
Sep 17, 2019 – Erika signs an agreement that Attorney Lending II has a first lien on any assets she and Tom have. This document surfaced in April 2021, and to date, neither Erika nor her lawyers have disputed that this is her signature.
Oct 25, 2019 – Erika signs an agreement that Counsel Financial that as the sole heir to Tom’s estate, she waives her rights to his estate until Counsel Financial is paid off. This document surfaced in April 2021, and to date, neither Erika nor her lawyers have disputed that this is her signature.
WOW I MISSED THIS PART BEFORE!
Basically lawsuits claiming that Tom Girardi embezzled victims funds were filed from June to December of 2019. Lots of them.
2020 Isn’t Any Better…
Apr 15, 2020 – Tom’s law firm is approved for a PPP loan of $1.5 million
Apr 20, 2020 – An article is posted about how she and Tom often discuss the law, that she asks lots of questions, and that she feels she could probably take the Bar exam because she knows so much. She says that Tom loves talking about the law, and enjoys explaining things to her.
May 22.2020 – RUIGOMEZ LAWSUIT Erika is personally served court documents including a subpoena at her home in Pasadena.
Sep 28,2020 – RUIGOMEZ LAWSUIT For the second time, Erika is personally served court documents including a subpoena at her home in Pasadena.
Sep 30 – FINN LAWSUIT Another law office sues Tom for fraud, breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty, claiming that Tom misappropriated settlement funds, concealed that he even received those settlement funds, and refused to provide any accounting of the funds. The Blast, it seems is doing a daily search for any lawsuits relating to Tom Girardi, because as usual, they are first to post this info and it gets widely picked up by other tabloids.
Oct 2 – KCC LAWSUIT This lawsuit, originally filed in Oct 2019, is decided in Oct 2020, and finds in KCC’s favor, saying that Tom owes $7.5 million, and KCC may attach his assets.
Part 3 of this timeline was supposed to be posted today, but it hasn’t yet. I’ll let you know if there are any new tidbits in there for 2021. It’s posted! Here is the link, there is a LOT to take in. Most of it is talking about things Erika said on RHOBH and how they don’t match up to reality.
EDITED TO ADD THE FINAL POST
Dec 2, 2020 – LION AIR LAWSUIT Edelson PC files a major lawsuit in Illinois, in which they accuse Tom and Erika and Erika’s company, as well as a whole bunch of others, of embezzling funds meant for victims of the Lion Air plane crash.
Dec 16, 2020 – FINN LAWSUIT The lawsuit originally filed in September is now amended and expanded dramatically, and names Erika and her company EJ global. Like the Lion Air lawsuit, it accuses Tom and Erika of staging a sham divorce.
Dec 17, 2020 – filming for S11 Ep12 The LA Times publishes a very in-depth article about Erika and Tom’s legal troubles. The ladies react, and several them seek advice from outside the group about their potential liability.
Dec 18, 2020 – Erika posts and deletes “proof” that Tom was cheating on her. In doing so, she doxxes a judge. It is later revealed that the affair happened at least six or seven years earlier.
Dec 22, 2020 – Erika is warned by a federal judge to stop selling her clothes on Vestiare Collective.
Dec 22, 2020 – SELBERG LAWSUIT Judy Selberg has amended her lawsuit to include Erika personally.
If 2019 Was Bad, And 2020 Was Even Worse, 2021 Was Truly Awful
Jan 27, 2021 – filming for S11 Ep16 The ladies meet at Garcelle’s house for cocktails. Erika has glam get her ready for the occasion. In the preview for next week, Kyle meets with Erika, who tells her that Tom’s Pasadena mansion was broken into.
A few points about this break-in. It happened on Jan 22. Somehow, Law360 was the first website to pick up the news and reach out to the police for comment, then report it, and though they got confirmation that there WAS a break-in, and that there were signs of forced entry around a window, they were unable to get any more information regarding whether Tom or anyone else was there, or whether there was anything stolen.
Though his brother insisted that he was, at that point, mentally incompetent and totally unable to care for himself he was living alone without any kind of medical care or overnight help. His lawyer, on the other hand, filed paperwork with the courts stating that when they did a home visit, they found that Tom was doing well, was having no problem taking care of himself, and had no medical help, but he couldn’t coherently discuss his legal situation.
But Wait! There’s More!
Feb 3, 2021 – Motion is granted to evict Tom from the Pasadena home. Trustee Rund files paperwork with the courts to indicate that he has an interest in all community property, which includes everything Erika owns.
Feb 20, 2021 – it is confirmed that Erika has been receiving legal fees that were supposed to be paid to Girardi Keese, and that Erika herself signed for the money. Her lawyers and the Trustee are currently fighting over the payments – the Trustee redirected the 2021 payment to escrow, but Erika’s lawyers want them kept in trust because they believe a court will award them to Erika.
Feb 23, 2021 – Tom’s lawyer goes to the Pasadena mansion, and later reports to the court that Tom is having no trouble caring for himself. See lines 21 to 27 of this document He still has a housekeeper, a landscaper, an assistant from Girardi Keese to help him with business matters, and a driver. See lines 1 to 4 from this document
Mar 8, 2021 – California Franchise Tax Board files tax claim against community property for over 5 million dollars. Everything Erika has is subject to this claim.
Mar 23, 2021 – Erika finally starts to participate in the court proceedings, by objecting Trustee Rund getting his hands on any of her money or her stuff, and also claiming her homestead exemption on the Pasadena home, essentially saying “when you sell it I want my $600,000 before you start paying Tom’s victims”.
Mar 24, 2021– Trustee Rund (Tom’s personal bankruptcy trustee) lists Erika as a co-debtor on all of Tom’s debts.
