The outlet uncovered the LA-based prosecutor Dale Nowicki, who worked for a State Bar of California supervisor, was secretly working in private practice with Tom Girardi’s son-in-law David Lira for over a year.

The issue being he was required to disclose the side work to the State Bar.

Lira worked with Girardi at his law firm Girardi Keese for years until resigning amid growing legal issues. He is a named defendant in the federal lawsuit filed against Girardi and Jayne.

In the suit, a group of orphans and widows who were represented by Girardi Keese in a lawsuit against Boeing accuse the firm and Girardi of failing to pay out $2 million owed to them.

Girardi, a once-respected lawyer who is accused of running his firm like a Ponzi scheme for a decade, is currently in the middle of an involuntary bankruptcy. He was also placed under a conservatorship by his family as they claim he has dementia.

Nowicki reportedly worked for a supervisor who was “overseeing the bar's prosecution of Girardi for allegedly stealing from clients' settlements.” The bar is already facing heat for failing to revoke Girardi’s law license years ago. Many claim Girardi was close friends with many bar employees.

The report says Nowicki stepped down from his role on October 4. The decision came after Law360 reached out to him for comment on their expose.

The State Bar of California said they were unaware of Nowicki working with Lira and were working to fix the issues. They denied he had any involvement in the investigation into Girardi.

As Radar previously reported, Jayne is also being sued for $25 million as part of Girardi's bankruptcy. The trustee presiding over the case accused the firm of using company money to pay the bills for Jayne's company EJ Global for years. They believe the money potentially was embezzlement and believe she should pay back the money.

Jayne has refused to pay back a dime and believes she did nothing wrong. The case is ongoing.
