lisa vanderpump’s legal drama with fallen Hollywood dog rescuer Lizzie Scherer may have been thrown out of court, but the Saving Spot owner’s legal woes are far from over. According to CBS Los Angeles, Scherer has been forced by The Attorney General to shut down her controversial dog rescue center just one month after she attempted to sue the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star and her husband Ken Todd for a half million dollars.

The judge that ordered the shelter to be closed hinted to that the Cease and Desist order was given after multiple incidents at the rescue center, while CBS 2 conducted a hidden camera investigation that showed illegal activity taking place at Saving Spot, prompting the Attorney General to take action.

According to the Daily Mail, the nonprofit rescue center was soliciting money for pets and claiming the expense was tax-deductible. In addition, in 2015, Saving Spot’s tax-exempt status was revoked by the IRS for failing to file tax returns.

Lisa’s reaction to the shut down

In a statement to the Daily Mail, Lisa Vanderpump revealed that her concerns with the dog rescue center matched those of the Attorney General. Vanderpump explained that she withdrew involvement from Saving Spot and opened her own rescue center, Vanderpump Dogs. Lisa also slammed the heads of the now-shut down Saving Spot for engaging on the “malicious” lawsuit against her. The “RHOBH” star called the allegations against her and her husband “slanderous and absurd,” Vanderpump hired famed Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer to go head to head with Saving Spot after Scherer accused the Bravo star of not paying her after an alleged $32,000 deal between them.

Vanderpump revealed that she didn’t back out on any deal and that she willingly gave Scherer $40,000 free and clear after she fell on tough times.

There is no word if Lisa Vanderpump’s legal drama will be addressed on the upcoming 8th season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” Vanderpump previously revealed that she was happy that the Bravo reality show filmed scenes about her dog rescue work last season instead of just focusing on the drama among the "RHOBH" co-stars.

“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” returns to Bravo later this year.
