Erika Jayne Believes Tom Girardi Was Unfaithful Before Their Split
Erika Jayne is off the hook, at least in Illinois.
The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star has been dismissed from her estranged husband Tom Girardi’s embezzlement and fraud lawsuit, according to court documents filed in the state on Jan. 29.
“Pursuant to stipulation, plaintiff’s claims against defendants EJ Global LLC and Erika Girardi are dismissed without prejudice and without costs,” according to the filing, obtained by E! News.
Shortly after the decision made, Jay Edelson, an attorney for the plaintiffs in the case, took to Twitter to vow to carry on his clients’ legal fight.
“We have not stopped pursuing @erikajayne, just switching courts,” he explained in one post. “We believe we can prove she benefitted from Tom’s ponzi scheme.”
He also said that the lawsuit, filed by Edelson PC, is “being refiled in California” to “avoid fights over jurisdiction.”

Jayne’s attorney Evan Borges released his own statement Jan. 29 praising the court’s recent decision and further defending his client.
“While Edelson retains the right to re-fie in California, the dismissal of Erika from the federal lawsuit that triggered bankruptcies of Girardi Keese and Tom Girardi is extremely important,” he said.
