‘RHOBH’s Tom Girardi Found Competent To Stand Trial

Tiffany Brockworth |

Tom Girardi, the estranged husband of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Tom Girardi, has been deemed competent to stand trial for defrauding his clients of millions of dollars.

The Los Angeles Times reports that “the order was placed under seal until lawyers for both sides have a chance to identify information in it that they want to be kept confidential, such as health records or other sensitive material.”

In August, Girardi, prosecutors accused Girardi, who suffers from dementia, of exaggerating his illness.

“Less than one month after the bankruptcy proceedings were initiated, and criminal and State Bar referrals were made by federal and state judges, defendant’s brother filed a petition in Los Angeles Superior Court to have a conservator appointed, alleging that defendant could no longer care for himself or his estate. Without the benefit of any adversarial testing, the petition was subsequently granted mere months later,” prosecutors explained in documents obtained by Radar Online.

He has been charged with eight counts of wire fraud and four counts of criminal contempt.
