Tom Girardi and his firm’s former bookkeeper are anticipated to plead the Fifth Amendment at an upcoming contempt hearing involving two former partners at Girardi Keese.

The Chicago federal judge who referred Girardi and his defunct firm to federal prosecutors after issuing a Dec. 14 contempt order against them is preparing an evidentiary hearing to determine whether two other former partners, Keith Griffin and David Lira, should be held in contempt for failing to explain what happened to $2 million in missing client settlement funds.
