Erika Jayne slams lawyer in bankruptcy case, claims she is cooperating
Erika Jayne is fighting for a lawyer to be excluded from her ex-husband’s bankruptcy case after the lawyer filed documents alleging she was not cooperating with the investigation.
In new documents, obtained by Page Six, Jayne’s attorneys say the “RHOBH” star “has been and remains ready to fully cooperate” with the investigation and demand that attorney Ronald N. Richards be removed from the investigation. ‘case for having made’ false and inflammatory remarks. social media posts and public statements ”about it.
Jayne “is not media fiction. He is a real person with rights, including the right to be treated fairly in these proceedings on the basis of real evidence and the law, ”the documents say.
His lawyers alleged that Richards’ social media posts “Violate the ethical rules to which he is bound and which unfairly target [her] with the aim of destroying her credibility even before any claim is brought against her in these proceedings.

It’s still unclear if Jayne knew if now disgraced lawyer Girardi allegedly stole money from her clients to fund their lavish lifestyles, as she denied knowing about her alleged crimes in the trailer for season 11 of “RHOBH”.
She told her co-stars that “no one knows the answer [about what is going on] but him.
