According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the security company GS1 Group has informed the court they are dismissing all claims against Erika’s husband. The battle may not be over completely because they filed the dismissal without prejudice, meaning they could refile at a later date.
As The Blast previously reported, earlier this year, GS1 sued Thomas accusing him of refusing to pay his $53,000 bill.
In the lawsuit, GSI said they were hired on September 9, 2018. They were hired to provide security for the Pasadena home where Thomas lives with Erika. Thomas agreed to pay $39 per hour for armed guard services.
The company said Thomas stopping paying his bill in September 2019. Despite the non-payment, GS1 continued providing services until January 31, 2020.
The suit said, “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. Defendant did not offer explanation for ceasing to pay as required by the terms of the agreement.”
Further, “plaintiff provided armed guard service from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. at the same rate of $39 per hour.” The lawsuit is seeking the unpaid balance of $53,859 plus interest from the date of “first breach.”
The lawsuit being dismissed is a victory for Thomas. In the past couple of years, Erika’s husband has faced a series of lawsuits over alleged unpaid loans.
Last year, Erika and Thomas were sued for $3 million by a lender named Stillwell Madison. The lender accuses Thomas and his law firm of taking out a $5 million loan in 2016. The firm was to pay back the loan with profits from cases. The lender accuses them Thomas of failing to pay back the loan and instead using it to fund his lavish lifestyle with Erika.
