Girardi is accused of running his law firm like a Ponzi scheme. In court docs, his former clients accuse him of screwing them out of millions owed.

As part of the bankruptcy, Jayne was sued by the trustee for $25 million. They are demanding she pay back the money Girardi’s firm used to pay the bills for her company EJ Global.

In the newly filed motion, the trustee is asking the court for permission on obtaining the records from American Express.
