Court will be in session:

A Los Angeles federal judge ruled that disgraced attorney, Tom Girardi, is “competent to stand trial” according to the LA Times.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Erika Jayne‘s 84-year-old estranged husband will have to “answer charges that he stole more than $15 million from his clients as part of a long-running fraud scheme at his law firm.”

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

“The ruling was a victory for prosecutors and for legions of Girardi’s former clients who feared that their erstwhile lawyer’s dementia diagnosis would forestall a jury trial and accountability for the now-84-year-old.”

Erika has yet to respond to the court’s demand. Stay tuned for more info on this developing story.
