Stormy Daniels is said to be in some rather serious financial peril these days as she is being sucked dry by a combination of legal stupidity on her part, as well as mounting legal fees owed to her (rumored to be in danger of being disbarred) attorney, Michael Avenatti. This week the judge who threw out her lame attempt to sue President Trump for defamation also ordered Ms. Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford) to pay Trump nearly $300,000 in legal fees. OUCH!
Via The Hill:
A federal judge on Tuesday ordered adult-film star Stormy Daniels to pay President Trump more than $293,000 in legal fees amid their ongoing legal battles.
U.S. District Judge James Otero ordered Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, to pay the fees in her defamation case against Trump, which Otero dismissed in October.
Trump’s attorney, Charles Harder, praised Tuesday’s decision as “a total victory for the President, and a total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case.”
Avenatti blasted the decision Tuesday, saying in a statement to The Hill that “Harder and Trump deserve each other because they are both dishonest.”
