According to court documents obtained by Radar, the trustee presiding over Girardi's involuntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy is asking for permission from the court to demand records from Western Alliance Bank.
Girardi is accused of owing $101 million to various creditors including many of his former clients. He is accused of screwing a group of orphans and widows out of $2 million, a fire burn victim out of $11 million and various other individuals who trusted him to take care of their legal matters.
The trustee — who took over control of Girardi's finances — claims to have spent several months going over the disbarred attorney's records. In court docs, they reveal multiple bank accounts were uncovered and they need the bank statements to fully understand what they are looking at.
In the motion, the trustee says she hopes the statements, "may shed light on the Debtor's 17 financial history and potentially uncover assets that belong to the bankruptcy estate." Any money recovered could potentially be used to pay back the many creditors.
The judge signed off on the request which means the victims will soon find out if more money is available to pay off debts.
As Radar previously reported, the bankruptcy judge recently signed off on the orphans and widows being allowed to pursue legal action against Jayne over the missing millions. The lawyer representing the parties claims to have financial records that prove Girardi used the orphans' money to pay the bills for Jayne's company EJ Global.
The Bravo star has denied knowing anything about her husband''s alleged misdeeds. She left him in November 2020 as his legal problems started to mount.
Jayne claims she decided to leave after Girardi stopped listening to her and was refusing to take her advice to see a doctor.
As part of the bankruptcy, the trustee slapped the reality star with a $25 million lawsuit. The suit is demanding she return money her estranged husband's firm spent on her over the past decade. She denies all allegations of wrongdoing and has moved for the case to be tossed.
Recently, she filed docs stating she plans to depose Girardi as part of her defense — interesting given he is currently living in a senior living home after his family placed him under a conservatorship. They claim he is suffering from dementia and unable to take care of himself or answer questions in court.
