Thomas Girardi’s $1.25 Mil La Quinta Home to Be Auctioned Off, Amount Going to Burn Victim Owed $11 Mil is Revealed

Thomas Girardi's $1.25 Million La Quinta Home to Be Auctioned Off as Amount Going to Burn Victim Owed $11 Million is Revealed

The sale of Thomas Girardi‘s La Quinta home will benefit a burn victim owed $11 million in settlement funds.

Weeks after Erika Jayne was seen learning about her former lawyer husband’s secret property on an episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, attorney Ronald Richards, who is investigating Erika’s finances as part of the bankruptcy proceedings against her husband, has confirmed where the proceeds from the $1.25 million property would go.

“Breaking: Girardi’s La Quinta condo is finally up for sale. The sale will result at a minimum of $730,000 to the estate with $584k going to the Ruigomez creditors. $335k is going to Girardi’s trustee’s attorney’s bill. The sales price is $1,250,000,” Ronald announced on September 14.

Ronald also shared a second message in which he confirmed the public sale of the property would take place on October 5, 2021, at 10 a.m.

“Here is the notice of sale date. You can register and bid on the property if you want. Here is the notice and bidding instructions for your review,” he wrote in the second tweet.

As RHOBH fans may know, Joseph Ruigomez and his family accused Thomas in 2019 of failing to turn over an $11 million settlement his firm won for him in 2013 after he sustained severe injuries and trauma in a 2010 San Bruno gas pipeline explosion.

Then, in April of this year, the family requested the debt Thomas owes to them, which had climbed to $11,747,245.95, not be tossed out amid bankruptcy proceedings. And, months later, a judge ruled that the family could go after Erika for their money.

“All assets identified by the Ruigomez family shall be subject to all rights of the Girardi bankruptcy estate and the [Girardi Keese] bankruptcy estate, which parties shall meet and confer in good faith to determine the character/ownership of the identified assets,” a court document said, also noting, “The Ruigomez Family, the Girardi Trustee, and the GK Trustee shall cooperate with each other with their collection efforts against Erika.”

After filing their initial lawsuit against Thomas, the Ruigomez family was given a payment of $1 million, and they expected to continue to receive payments from him for a total of $12 million. However, the first payment was all they ever received.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
