Girardi is Competent to Stand Trial: A Public Defender Weighs In

Girardi is Competent to Stand Trial: A Public Defender Weighs In
We are doing something different today and interviewing a member of our legal team, Monica Nguyen. Monica is a Deputy Public Defender that specializes in competency and has been working solely in mental health for 15 years. Monica digs into the court's decision on Tom Girardi's competency and provides her opinion, based on her experience, of the decision and what the court could have addressed further. Monica can be found on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/mentalhealthlawyer/ As an initial note, this is not at all to defend what Tom did, but rather is an opportunity to consider the order from a different perspective with an attorney who is experienced in the subject matter. This is not our practice area so when we can rely on members of the legal team who do practice in the area, we want them to share.

Receipts, Proof, Timeline: Our Insight into Reality Von Tease
Picture this: it was early 2021, we had just released our first podcast episode and were trying to learn how to market our newly minted Instagram account. We searched for other creators to connect with and found an account that had shared headline making, leaked audio of Jen Shah. This was pre-arrest so it was the only Jen "tea" that was out at the time. This account had 2000+ followers and counting then, but it seemed like they had an in or were incredibly good at finding sources. We added them to stay on top of the news. But shortly after, Jen was arrested and the tone shifted as the account's goal seemed to be to completely take down Jen. Our content soon appeared on their page. We exchanged some DMs. The account then fledged a full blown war on Jen. This was Reality Von Tease and this is our breakdown of our interactions, the timeline, the receipts, the proof, the evidence, and our thoughts on it all.Access additional content and our Patreon here: https://zez.am/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.

Competency - What Does it Mean? Pt I
What does it mean to be found competent to stand trial? We are here to explain everything about competency in the context of Tom Girardi. Earlier this year, Tom Girardi was indicted on federal criminal charges in two separate districts. But the cases are at a stand still while the court determines whether Tom Girardi is competent to stand trial. In this first part of a two-part competency discussion we lay the ground work of how we got here in Tom's cases. We cover his conservatorship and lay the legal groundwork for what it means to be found competent, how it works, and how it will work with Tom.As mentioned in the episode, we are hosting a meet-up on Saturday, November 4 at 6pm in Las Vegas, Bravo-Con weekend.
