Investigating attorney Ronald Richards has revealed that he has been “actively talking” to RHOBH’s Erika Jayne about settling a $25 million lawsuit.
“I gave her a week to just voluntarily return the money, but she never did,” Richards told Us Magazine. “I can’t get into the settlement discussion, but we are trying to resolve the case with her attorney. This is the $25 million that [Girardi’s] law firm paid on behalf of Erika to cover her expenses over a 12-year period.”
However, Evan C. Borges, Erika Jayne’s attorney, says that they’ve only been listening to what Richards has to say. There is no deal or agreement on the table.

“Regarding settlement discussions, those are supposed to be confidential between counsel,” he told Us. “It appears that my opposing counsel Mr. Richards has been discussing publicly what he calls settlement discussions. Here’s the truth: Mr. Richards has reached out and told me that he and the trustee want to settle. I have listened and will continue to listen. That’s it.”
