In this episode we provide the groundwork necessary to understand Johnny Depp's defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard by first discussing Depp's lawsuit against the British tabloid "The Sun." We begin by providing a background on both Depp and Heard which includes Heard's past run-ins with the law, like her criminal history in Australia. We next discuss the important legal and procedural differences between defamation in the US and UK and how they affected Depp's case. We then review each of the 14 incidents of violence "The Sun" used to defend their statement. Though we realize the US trial is at the top of everyone's interest, understanding the UK trial will give you the helpful background.

One of the first lawsuits we wanted to cover when we started the podcast was Jim Bellino's lawsuit against Heather McDonald, Shannon Storms Beador, and Tamra Judge for what he claims were defamatory statements at a live-recording of the Juicy Scoop podcast. Researching and recording this did not disappoint. We uncovered details of an FBI sting Bellino was involved in, explain our fears of trampoline parks, detail the elements of defamation suits as well as defending against them using California's anti-slapp laws, and more!

As you have probably heard, there is a new civil case waiting in the wings to be filed against Erika and others related to Tom Girardi's law firm. This lawsuit has not yet been filed, but we have seen the nearly 100-page draft complaint accusing Erika Girardi of violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, ("RICO"). In this episode, we explain what facts the complaint alleges to support the claim that Tom's firm was nothing more than a "family enterprise" poised to suck in victims and steal their settlement funds. We also discuss why the complaint alleges that Erika was the "frontwoman" of the whole operation and how this supports the RICO claim against her. The law is complex, but we explain the potential civil case accusing Erika Girardi of violating RICO, what RICO is, and provide some history of this fascinating law. As a bonus you will learn about why RICO charges against the Hells Angels were unsuccessful, yet successful against the mafia.Access our Patreon, Instagram, Website, YouTube, and more here: https://linktr.ee/thebravodocketThe Bravo Docket podcast, the statements we make whether in our own media or elsewhere, and any content we post are for entertainment purposes only and do not provide legal advice.

Before Jen's trial was moved, both Jen and the government filed motions seeking to exclude certain evidence from ever reaching the jury's eyes. We discuss what that evidence is - and why Jen wants to keep it out while the government wants to rely upon it to put on their case. Not to spoil it, but the evidence includes Jen's supposed threats to Stu and his wife, missing account information for her bank accounts in Kosovo, clips from The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City and more! Jen also subpoenaed every co-defendant in the case for evidence and even subpoenaed ABC News for materials related to the Hulu documentary, The Housewife & The Shah Shocker - we explain what this evidence was and how we think it will play out.Access our Patreon, Instagram, Website, YouTube, and more here: https://linktr.ee/thebravodocketThe Bravo Docket podcast, the statements we make whether in our own media or elsewhere, and any content we post are for entertainment purposes only and do not provide legal advice.

Now that the epic second season of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is done, we thought we would review the statements Jen Shah and her husband gave about her pending criminal case and analyze them in the context of what we have learned about the case from the pleadings and the show. We also revisited the pre-trial motions (which we covered in detail in a prior episode) to get a sense of what her defense might be leading into trial and see whether the statements she made align with that defense. We also read from the transcript where Stuart pleaded guilty. Lastly, we give our general thoughts on the reunion.

Though Jen Shah’s trial has been moved, we still wanted to give you some insight into the case, starting with the sentencing process and the sentences some of her co-defendants have already received. As we discuss, the process includes sentencing submissions in which both sides put forth what they think the defendant should get, and the defendant puts forth evidence of their good behavior and states what led them to commit the crime. They are fascinating and help humanize the defendant. Another part of sentencing is the sentencing hearing where both sides argue about what the defendant should get based on several factors, the defendant often gives a statement, and the judge issues a sentence. We have these transcripts and read directly from them to provide you with insight.  We hope to do a second episode on the sentences once the remaining defendants receive sentences and plan to cover each part of the trial process.  Access our Patreon, Instagram, Website, YouTube, and more here: https://linktr.ee/thebravodocket The Bravo Docket podcast, the statements we make whether in our own media or elsewhere, and any content we post are for entertainment purposes only and do not provide legal advice.

We are finally covering the many lawsuits Lisa Vanderpump, of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has faced - and buckle up because these cover a wide-range of topics. From slip and falls and food poisioning at SUR to unpaid rent and unpaid fruit and veggie orders at Villa Blanca and Pump, we're digging into all of it. There's also some worms ... skip ahead if you're squeamish... and sexual harassment at Vanderpump Dogs. We also discuss what to expect if you go to a plaintiff's attorney with a potential personal injury case and how a business might defend against these claims. As a bonus, you get to hear about Cesie & Angela's unfounded childhood fear of quicksand and tapeworms. Like we said, there's a wide-range of topics in this episode. This is the first part of what will be a two part episode. The second will cover the many employment law related cases.

In this episode we discuss the lawsuit Dr. Jen Armstrong's billionaire ex-boyfriend filed against her for over $1,000,000 and outline who got dragged into the lawsuit with her. We're not saying she was a gold digger..... but there are tales of "grifting" and "fleecing," multiple frauds alleged, paternity tests, and even bonus embezzlement and blackmail allegations. We discuss the bench trial and the opinion from the California Court of Appeals as you will also learn what a SLAPP motion is, and what that has to do with a documentary called “Big Boys Gone Bananas.” We also discuss the lawsuit that Dr. Jen filed against a former employee and the receipts Dr. Jen attached to those pleadings with more text messages and claims of reports to the FBI.

Who knew a new housewife would bring us so many lawsuits to summarize? This episode focuses on newest Orange County Housewife, Noella Bergener, and her husband who goes by the trademarked and highly promoted moniker of Sweet James. Sweet James has gone through three divorces that we cover in this episode - his divorce from his first wife, his divorce from his law firm business partner, and his recent divorce from Noella. They say, there's nothing like a woman scorned, but after reading his former business partner's complaint, we think the saying should be amended to, "there's nothing like a former partner scorned." We had to split this into two parts because there was just so much alleged. A lot is unsavory so we want to reiterate that these were allegations made in court filings.  Access our Patreon, Instagram, Website, YouTube, and more here: https://linktr.ee/thebravodocket The Bravo Docket podcast, the statements we make whether in our own media or elsewhere, and any content we post are for entertainment purposes only and do not provide legal advice.

Did you catch us in the new Jen Shah documentary on Hulu? In this episode, we share about our experience on that and then dive head first into many of the questions we got from you about the Girardi cases and Erika's behavior at the reunion. You all asked us such great questions and we hope this clarifies things further. We will likely put a pin in Girardi until we get another large case development.  We have just launched a new YouTube channel with extra content and a Patreon where you can support us and get benefits!

We usually release episodes bi-weekly but given what is happening on SLC right now, we thought we should revisit our original episode on Jen Shah. This episode was originally first released on April 5, 2021. We will continue our Erika discussion next week and return to publishing every other week again.  In this emergency episode we discuss the recent, shocking arrest of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast member, Jen Shah. We explain how the alleged scheme functioned, what the charges against her are, our thoughts on Coach Shah's involvement, what a grand jury investigation entails, and how sentencing works. We can only assume this will be a multi-part series as Jen's case proceeds.

We were due for a Girardi update, weren't we? Now that the season of Beverly Hills is over, we thought we should revisit the Girardi cases and provide an overview of what has happened since we released our last Girardi update this past June. There have been HUGE filings and allegations made within the bankruptcies that we had to share. The parallels with the Teresa and Joe fraud case cannot be more similar.  Please listen to our past Girardi episodes for a refresher on the case. We have 4 episodes in total about this case. Our first was episode 4 where we talked about the basics of what it was alleged Tom did in the Edelson case. There we explained how settlement funds in contingency cases work and how what Tom was accused of doing is basic lawyer no no 101.  Our second episode was Episode 9 where we went over Big Frank’s disbarment over doing essentially the same thing on a lesser scale. We then discussed one of the several LA times articles where they talked about how Tom’s connections got him by.  Our third and fourth episodes about Girardi were episodes 12 and 13 where we dove DEEP into the timeline of how this came to be, discussed the various cases involved, discussed the bankruptcies and some concepts like privilege, divorces and how it could benefit Erika.  Access listening links, bonus content, and near-daily updates here: https://linktr.ee/thebravodocket The Bravo Docket podcast, the statements we make whether in our own media or elsewhere, and any content we post are for entertainment purposes only and do not provide legal advice.

First, these are the time stamps for if you want to skip our very impressive dramatic reading of excerpts from the depositions of Brandi Glanville (11:00-14:03), Lisa Vanderpump (21:13-28:10), and Mohamed Hadid (28:54-36:49).  In this episode, the second and final part of our Joanna Krupa v. Brandi Glanville series, you will learn about motions to dismiss and punitive damages, and the summary judgment motions filed in this case, which include juicy details about the housewives contracts. You will get more tea via the court's rulings on detailed discovery requests, including why Joanna Krupa was ordered to turn her medical records over for inspection by the Judge. You will also hear what Krupa's (at the time) soon to be ex-husband testified about under oath, and hear Lisa Vanderpump and Mohamed Hadid's testimony. (LVP's testimony does not disappoint, even with Angela's attempts to read it whilst doing her best LVP impression.) We also tell you all about what Brandi said about the case on Howard Stern, we give you the details of the "salmon incident" and we explain how the case was finally resolved.

In this episode we explain exactly what Teresa & Joe were charged with, what the government had to prove for Teresa & Joe to be found guilty of the charges, and what their defenses were. We also talk about the pretrial motions that were filed, whether Teresa ever considered testifying against Joe, and how the bankruptcy provided a roadmap for the federal indictment.

In this episode we cover the events preceding Teresa & Joe’s federal indictment. We explain what happened leading up to the federal criminal charges, with specific references to the casting process as described in Teresa’s book, and the previous lawsuits which likely got the attention of the Department of Justice. We detail their bankruptcy and discuss where it went wrong. We also explain the parallels with the Tom Girardi bankruptcies, and how those similarities could spell trouble for Erika Jayne.
