A judge has sided with Fotis Dulos, ruling this week that his company will not have to undergo a review of business finances as part of the $2.5 million lawsuits filed against him by his mother-in-law.

Hartford Superior Court Judge Cesar Noble issued the ruling Tuesday, one day after attorney William Murray, representing Fotis Dulos, filed an objection to the inspection.

Murray also filed a similar objection opposing attorney Richard Weinstein’s attempts to force Fotis Dulos to supply other financial information, including the money source for his criminal defense team.

Murray contends the financial information sought by Gloria Farber’s attorney has nothing to do with the potential outcome of the lawsuits.

“The defendants object to this request on the grounds that it is not reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence,” Murray said repeatedly in his motion asking judge to deny Weinstein’s demands for information on how he was paying his criminal defense team.

Murray took a similar stance in a motion filed Monday, objecting to a review of his client’s business finances. Noble sided with Murray by sustaining the objection.

Weinstein has also filed an objection to a move by Fotis Dulos’ defense attorney Norm Pattis to quash a subpoena to be deposed in the lawsuits. Pattis is claiming attorney-client privilege, which Weinstein said doesn’t exist when it comes to information on how an lawyer is paid. Pattis failed to show up for a deposition Sept. 10.

Murray and Weinstein have sparred in court filings in recent weeks as police continue to search for Jennifer Dulos, who disappeared May 24.

Fotis and Jennifer Dulos were embroiled in a bitter two-year divorce when the 50-year-old mother of five vanished. Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, are facing evidence tampering and hindering prosecution charges in her disappearance.

More than a year before she vanished, her mother and the estate of her late father, Hilliard Farber, filed twin lawsuits claiming Fotis Dulos reneged on arrangements to reimburse the family $2.5 million in loans to his high-end real estate development company, Fore Group.

Weinstein has since filed repeated motions seeking financial information from Fotis Dulos, including financial affidavits related to the divorce.

Weinstein said Fotis Dulos has not paid alimony or child support since his wife filed for divorce in 2017 and stopped paying the mortgage on his Farmington home last November. Weinstein’s client, who put up $2.3 million in cash collateral so Fotis and Jennifer Dulos could purchase the home in 2012, filed last week to foreclose on the property.

Farber, 84, has been granted the right to intervene in her daughter’s contentious two-year divorce and has maintained custody of the couple’s children since Jennifer Dulos went missing. Farber is now seeking sole legal custody of them.

Weinstein contended in court filings that Fotis Dulos supplied contradictory information about his finances as part of the lawsuits and is trying to “disseminate” his assets as part of his divorce to Jennifer Dulos. He was seeking a forensic review of the Fore Group, which Fotis Dulos claims has had no income for months.

Weinstein is also seeking documentation dating back to January 2017 to support expense reimbursements from the Fore Group to Fotis Dulos. Weinstein also wants records indicating how Fotis Dulos is paying his criminal defense team, including Pattis, a high-profile criminal defense and civil rights attorney, and private investigator Patrick McKenna who often works on celebrity cases, and all documents given to the defense team about a Fidelity retirement account.

Murray contends the lawsuit hinges on whether the Farber family’s money was a gift to Fotis Dulos as his client has said. Murray is also objecting to providing much of the information on grounds it is covered by attorney-client privilege.

The lawsuits are slated to go to trial in December. Murray called Weinstein’s attempts to get the financial information an “extreme burden” and a form of harassment against his client and the Fore Group.

Jennifer Dulos was last seen on a neighbor’s security camera returning home around 8:05 a.m. May 24 after dropping off her five children at a nearby school.

Police believe Fotis Dulos was “lying in wait” when she arrived at her Welles Lane home, where they found evidence that she was the victim of a “serious physical assault” based on blood stains and spatter in the garage, according to arrest warrants.

Fotis Dulos, 52, pleaded not guilty last week to the latest tampering with evidence charge. The charge is related to Fotis Dulos and Troconis cleaning up a pickup truck — owned by a former Fore Group employee — that police say was involved in the disappearance, according to the arrest warrant.

Under the direction of Fotis Dulos, the employee later removed the seats from his truck, but he kept them and turned them over to investigators who found Jennifer Dulos’ blood on one of them, the arrest warrants state.

Troconis, 44, was arraigned Wednesday on the charge during a brief appearance in Superior Court in Norwalk.

Fotis Dulos and Troconis previously pleaded not guilty to the original tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution charges.

Police said those charges are related to video surveillance in Hartford that showed two people resembling Fotis Dulos and Troconis the night of the disappearance, according to arrest warrants.

The videos show them making a series of stops in a 4-mile stretch with Fotis Dulos tossing garbage bags that were later determined to contain his wife’s blood and clothing, arrest warrants state.

Fotis Dulos is scheduled to be back in criminal court on Oct. 4.
