McClure, in return, created a GoFundMe campaign with her boyfriend 35-year-old Mark D'Amico to raise money for Bobbitt to thank him.
For his part, D'Amico said that they did not give the veteran the whole amount at once because they fear he has a drug problem and that he will not spend the money responsibly.
Ms McClure set up the online fundraising page as a way to give back to Mr Bobbitt, who came to her aid when she ran out of fuel on an Interstate 95 exit ramp in Philadelphia late one night last October.
After her campaign went viral, $402,706 (£309,962) was raised by more than 14,000 donors, which Ms McClure initially said would be spent on apartment rent and a reliable vehicle.
Dow also ordered the couple to transfer the money into an escrow account, which will be controlled by Bobbitt's attorneys.
The Inquirerreported that D'Amico spoke of expenses he and his girlfriend had incurred caring for Bobbitt, including time that they took off from work.
"Mark D'Amico and Kate McClure gave Johnny about $75,000".
Mr Bobbitt's lawsuit alleges that they committed fraud by taking a large portion of the donations raised for him on GoFundMe for themselves.
Badway described the judge's ruling as a "harsh remedy" because the couple plans to file counterclaims for thousands of dollars worth of items and cash that Bobbitt allegedly stole from them. McClure said the couple used their own money for the BMW and vacations. The lawsuit aims to retrieve funds owed to Bobbitts, who is now back living on the streets and begging for cash.
"From what I can see, the GoFundMe account raised $402,000 and GoFundMe charged a fee of approximately $30,000", Bobbitt's lawyer Chris Fallon told CNN on August 25.
But the relationship has since gone sour.
But D'Amico also insisted to the Inquirer that he won't give Bobbitt the money until he is sure the veteran is free of drugs, stating that he would rather "burn [the money] in front of him". "It's going to come down to a demonstration of all the money and where the money went".
A friend of Bobbitt's told The Philadelphia Inquirer that he had a "good heart" and was a talented and smart paramedic, but his life took an unfortunate turn.
In April, six months after his fateful meeting with McClure, Bobbitt told the Inquirer that he had been clean for three weeks and jobless for much longer.
Earlier this month, D'Amico said to a reporter that there was $200,000 left of the money in their savings account, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
Bobbitt's attorney told The Post that he is now in detox and working to get his life back.
Asked if Bobbitt might sue to seize some of the couple's personal assets, she said, "We will represent our client to the best of our abilities to recover all of the money raised for him".
