Jurors in the first part of Michael Avenatti’s bifurcated California criminal trial next month will hear a lot about the disgraced lawyer’s bankruptcy proceedings and mounting debt, but they won’t hear evidence of what prosecutors described as a “lifestyle of luxury, flash and glamour,” a judge has ruled.

They also won’t hear much about the civil cases underlying his client theft charges, as U.S. District Judge James V. Selna of the Central District of California agreed with the U.S. Attorney’s Office that the information is largely irrelevant.
