Plaintiffs attorney Thomas Girardi has been ordered to turn over documents detailing his personal net worth and the finances of his Los Angeles law firm, Girardi Keese, as part of a lawsuit alleging he misappropriated more than $12.5 million from a settlement over hormone replacement therapy drug Prempro.
The plaintiffs are 28 of 138 Girardi clients who settled claims in 2011 that they got breast cancer after taking Prempro. In their 2014 lawsuit, the women allege Girardi never disclosed to them the terms of the $17 million settlement or provided accounting records, in violation of California laws.
