The lawyer is apparently being sued by security company GS1 for allegedly refusing to pay $53,859 owed on security services that were provided for his Pasadena mansion where he lives with Erika.
In court documents obtained by The Blast, GS1 was hired on September 9, 2010 to provide security for Thomas’ residence, paying $39 per hour for armed guard services. The company claims Thomas stopped paying his bill in September 2019 and the company continued services through January 31, 2020.
“Defendant, without cause, stopped paying Plaintiff’s bill, and, on January 31, 2020, upon defendant’s breach of the agreement, Plaintiff ceased providing armed guard service,” the suit states. “Defendant did not offer explanation for ceasing to pay as required by the terms of the agreement. Plaintiff provided armed guard service from 8 p.m to 6 a.m. at the same rate of $39 per hour.”
The lawsuit seeks the full $53,859 balance to be paid plus interest from the date of “first breach.”
This isn’t the first time Tom has been in hot water over unpaid finances. Tom and Erika were sued for $3 million by lender Stillwell Madison, accusing Tom of taking out a $5 million loan in 2016.
Tom also faced a massive lawsuit last year for allegedly taking out $15 million in unpaid loans in 2015 to reportedly support a “lavish lifestyle” and keep his law firm, Girardi Keese, afloat. He was sued by the Law Finance Group for the full $15 million plus damages, claiming Tom refused to make any payments toward the balance.
Tom paid off a $6 million judgment of the loan in late 2019, fully settling the legal drama.
