(WTNH) — Fotis Dulos, estranged husband of missing New Canaan mother, Jennifer Farber Dulos, has hired a new lawyer to represent him in civil suits.

The civil case has been brought forward by Jennifer’s mother, Gloria Farber, in regards to his business operations. Dulos’ mother-in-law is suing him for $2.5 million from his business dealings with his company, The Fore Group.

Fotis’ previous civil case lawyers quit right after he was arrested in connection of his wife’s disappearance.

Fotis failed to appear for a July 9th deposition for a lawsuit brought against him by Jennifer’s family. The docket states Fotis was unaware that it was scheduled for that day. His legal team is looking to reschedule the deposition for later this month.

In regards to the criminal case surrounding Jennifer’s disappearance, Fotis Dulos and girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, are free on bond.

Both are pleading “not guilty” to evidence tampering and hindering the prosecution.

Michelle Troconis was back in court on Thursday, July 18th and will continue her appearance on August 19th.
