Los Angeles Judge Richard Froen recently confirmed that there was no evidence that Erica was involved in “any wrongdoing,” her attorney, Evan C. Borges, confirmed to Page Six.

Erica is being prosecuted as part of a $5 million fraud case for “aiding and abetting” disgraced attorney Tom, 81, in allegations he embezzled settlement money intended for his clients.

The lawsuit was brought by Tom’s former colleagues, attorneys Philip R. Sheldon and Robert B. Finn, and their attorney, Ronald Richards, said they intend to appeal the ruling.

In his ruling, the judge found that Erica did not owe Sheldon and Finn any fiduciary duty, which is an obligation that one party has to dispose of in the interest of another.

The court found that there was no justiciable case of material facts regarding that Ms Girardi had ‘actual knowledge’ of the plaintiffs’ claims that there was a fiduciary duty between the plaintiffs and [Girardi and Girardi & Keese]Judgment said.

“The court therefore grants a summary judgment in favor of the defendant, Erika Girardi,” she added.
