Federal Judge Orders Unredacted Mental Health Report from Tom Girardi in Embezzlement Case

In a significant development in the ongoing legal battle surrounding Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne’s husband Tom Girardi, a federal judge has ordered the disbarred lawyer to hand over an unredacted copy of a mental health report. This decision comes despite Girardi’s objections. The court documents reveal that Girardi’s legal team has been instructed to provide the report for review.

As previously reported, Girardi’s lawyer had requested a mental evaluation to determine his client’s competency to stand trial in his criminal case. The allegations against Girardi involve the embezzlement of a staggering $15 million from his law firm, Girardi Keese, between 2010 and 2020. Earlier this year, Girardi was charged with multiple counts of wire fraud. Complicating matters further, the family claimed he had been diagnosed with dementia, and Girardi has been residing in a senior assisted living facility since 2021. Around the same time, his wife, Erika Jayne, filed for divorce as his legal troubles intensified, and their law firm faced bankruptcy.

As part of Girardi’s criminal case, an expert neuropsychologist, Dr. Diana Goldstein, was enlisted by the government to conduct a mental evaluation. Dr. Goldstein determined that Girardi was competent to stand trial. However, Girardi has vehemently opposed the release of the unredacted report, citing concerns about the inclusion of certain information, particularly about his “alcohol use.” He argued that allowing prosecutors access to this information would taint the prosecution team.

In a recent hearing, the judge ruled in favor of the government. While he did not order the report to be turned over to prosecutors at this stage, the judge asserted that it should be provided to the court for review. Ultimately, it will be up to the judge to decide whether prosecutors will be granted access to the report.

The release of this unredacted mental health report promises to shed further light on Tom Girardi’s condition and potential impact on his ability to stand trial. As this high-profile case unfolds, the legal community and fans of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will eagerly await further developments and the judge’s ultimate decision regarding the report’s accessibility to prosecutors.
