It looks as though Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Mauricio Umansky’s legal problems are not over yet. In fact, a recent order from a judge has found there is enough cause for the lawsuit against Mauricio to proceed.
According to The Blast, a judge recently ruled in favor of the plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed against Mauricio, which claimed he committed fraud in the sale of a $32 million home, have enough evidence to go forward.
Mauricio’s team had filed a motion to dismiss the case but a judge was apparently “not buying a lot of the legal arguments [they] had presented.” The court ruled that the plaintiff, Sweetwater Malibu, would have to amend its complaint to include another plaintiff, Teodoro Mangue, to the lawsuit. But that they had enough cause to go forward with their lawsuit.

A quick refresher course for those who don’t remember. Mauricio is being sued by Sweetwater Malibu LLC, which is run by Teodoro Mangue, for allegedly selling the property under fraudulent pretenses. Mauricio sold the home for $32 million but the Plaintiff’s claim he failed to inform them of other, higher, offers he had received.
They also claim that Mauricio had been working with the buyer, Mauricio Oberfeld. That he ended up partnering with Oberfeld, flipping the property, and selling it for $69.9 million a year later. Mauricio would have received a profit of $37 million. That doesn’t sound suspicious at all. I’m sure Kyle’s Mauricio will have a very good reason. Do you think Kyle can blame Lisa Vanderpump for this?
All I have to ask is why in the world did we have to suffer through “puppy gate” when we had the mirage of wealth and grandeur built by PK Kemsley and Dorit Kemsley falling down around them. And Erika Girardi’s husband, Tom Girardi’s legal woes?
