Actor David Cassidy died on November 21 from organ failure in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
David Cassidy’s former lawyers are suing his estate for a $102,000 bill that the firm has been trying to collect over the last couple of years.
Rodier & Rodier sued the actor for five years of various legal work in 2013, according to court documents obtained by the Blast.
Cassidy died on November 21 from organ failure in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, prompting the law firm to switch over the defendant to his estate this week.
In total, The Partridge Family actor owed $134,221.50 and had paid $31,387.50. The new sum of $102,834 has yet to be paid.
When Cassidy filed for bankruptcy in 2015, he listed the law firm as a creditor during the case.
And while the bankruptcy was ultimately dismissed, the debt was not discharged.

If they win, the firm could take from Cassidy’s $150,000 estimated asset worth – none of which is going to daughter, Kate
The lawsuit was relaunched in Florida courts by the law firm on October 3 and a hearing was expected to occur on December 20.
Cassidy’s estate is only being estimated at being worth $150,000 in assets by his family.
Before he died, the 67-year-old specified in legal documents that all of his remaining fortune should be left to his son Beau.
Katie, 31, whose mother was never married to the singer, was not to receive any of it.
The documents were obtained by The Blast on Wednesday after being filed in court.
They were written in 2004 and have not been changed since despite Cassidy and Katie briefly reconciling.
‘It is my specific intent not to provide any benefits here under to Katherine Evelyn Cassidy and/or any descendant of Katherine Evelyn Cassidy,’ the will reads.
