Wow. Michael Avenatti really didn’t do Stormy Daniels any favors by filing her defamation suit against Trump without her permission, because it’s now going to cost her well over a quarter million:
CNBC – A judge in California has ordered porn star Stormy Daniels to pay President Donald Trump more than $293,000 in his attorneys’ fees and another $1,000 in sanctions in connection with her dismissed defamation suit against Trump.
Trump’s lawyer Charles Harder said that the fees that Daniels was ordered to pay amount to 75 percent of Trump’s legal feels in the case. And he said the sanctions are for Daniels having filed a “meritless” defamation action against Trump.
“The court’s order, along with the court’s prior order dismissing Stormy Daniels’ defamation case against the President, together constitute a total victory for the President, and a total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case,” Harder said.
Dang that’s a lot of dinero! And as Trump’s lawyer says, that’s only 75% of his legal fees too. She’s lucky the judge isn’t making her pay all of it.
So is Avenatti going to help Stormy pay this? He’s got his own mega bills from his legal troubles. Makes me wonder if their recent truce is going to last…
