Obviously, he disagrees with the conservatorship entirely, the 82-year-old Tom told a judge of his brother managing his person, estate, and assets, according to US Weekly.
I think that we should put together the reasons why the conservatorship should be dissolved, and then we’ll address it, address the court. Right now, I have nothing to say to the court.
Despite the struggling lawyer’s protests, the judge ruled that Robert should retain control of Tom’s affairs.
As it was reported in early February, Robert was appointed as Tom’s interim conservator when he had a serious illness.
After undergoing a medical evaluation as part of his brother’s attempt to be declared Tom’s lifelong conservator, the judicial eagle was identified with late-onset Alzheimer’s illness and dementia just one month later.
Jayne’s former husband’s medical issues come on the heels of a divorce from the Bravolebrity and the termination of his admittance to the California State Bar.
The “RHOBH” star, 49, filed for divorce weeks prior to the ex-couple got sued for allegedly stealing funds as part of their divorce by a legal firm defending the survivors of Lion Air Flight 610. Girardi then entered a poverty plea in court. The investigation is still ongoing.
Tom’s former law practice partner, Robert Keese, moved to dissolve their business venture, 1126 Wilshire Partnership, in December. Tom, according to Keese and other attorneys, failed to pay them the projected $315,000 they made from the collaboration, instead, raking in the cash for his own personal advantage.
Girardi is also being sued by Wells Fargo Financial Services for potentially breaking agreements he signed with the bank.
