Judge Dismisses Stormy Daniels’ Defamation Lawsuit Against Trump

Judge Dismisses Stormy Daniels’ Defamation Lawsuit Against Trump

Daniels is liable for Trump’s legal fees

Monday, a federal judge dismissed Stormy Daniels’s defamation lawsuit against President Trump. When Trump suggested the porn actress lied about being told to keep quiet about their alleged relationship, Daniels then claimed Trump defamed her.

Not only was the complaint dismissed, but Daniels was ordered to pay Trump’s legal fees.

WaPo has more:

A federal judge on Monday dismissed a lawsuit from adult film actress Stormy Daniels that claimed President Trump defamed her when he suggested she had lied about being threatened to keep quiet about their alleged relationship.

Federal District Judge S. James Otero in Los Angeles had indicated during a late September hearing that he was skeptical of Daniels’s claim on First Amendment grounds. The ruling ordered Daniels, whose given name is Stephanie Clifford, to pay Trump’s legal fees.

Trump attorney Charles Harder cheered Otero’s decision and said the amount of legal fees owed would be determined later.

“No amount of spin or commentary by Stormy Daniels or her lawyer, Mr. Avenatti, can truthfully characterize today’s ruling in any way other than total victory for President Trump and total defeat for Stormy Daniels,” Harder said in an emailed statement.

That makes yet another embarrassing loss for fame-lusting lawyer Michael Avenatti, who was most recently denied an audience with the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Collect those attorney fees!
Even if Trump does not need the money, he can always donate it to charity.

    Great idea! Donate it to a battered women’s shelter in DC. Watch them reject the money. More comedy gold!

      Use it as seed money to start a battered men’s shelter. Might even start a useful trend. We already sink fortunes into women’s shelters.

        I hired a young carpenter whose wife routinely beat him. This was about 40 years ago. She hit him in the head with a Bell Trimline phone, went at him more than once with a cast iron frying pan, and stabbed him with an arrow.
        She was short, fat and ugly, but to hear him tell it, she was alleged to be really something in the sack.
        There actually are battered men.

          Every study of domestic violence for the last forty years or more has found that it’s about 50-50. Women are just as likely as men to be perpetrators, and men are just as likely as women to be victims.

    Donate the fees to build the wall or to a fund for victims of violence at the hands of illegals.

    It is possible that the entire operation is being financed by Party Operatives. She may pay nothing out of her own pocket.

      Stormy and her sleaze bag attorney should be prosecuted for extortion. After she is bankrupt, she can stand on street corners with a sign, “Work horizontally for food”.

So if she files for bankruptcy, do they repo her boobs?

“But your honor he called me a Whore, and I am not a whore I just get paid to have sex!”

Whose having a worse day? It’s a hard choice, but I’d say Elizabeth Warren. So you start your presidential campaign about an “all about me” issue, and not the goal(s) you want to accomplish. Then again, when socialism is the goal, I’d want the campaign to be about something else.

#Failifornia SLAPP law strikes again…

Sloppy Daniels is going to have to get busy, because i doubt PDJT scrimps on hiring lawyers.

pass the pop corn!

Guess who’s about to get stiffed by their lawyer? For legal fees, that is.

Still not tired of #winning

She’ll need to hit the road again to earn money to pay Trump’s lawyer’s fees, so to be announced tomorrow: The Stormy Daniels “My Lawyer Sucks Tour!”

Subtitles:

“Judge order Stormy Daniels to pay Trump for having sex with her’.

Apparently, breaking news this evening, Mr. Avenatti tweeted vile threats at the President and aslo filed a Notice of Appeal this evening in the Ninth Circuit.

I dunno Stormy–maybe you should have hired a more competent lawyer. Avenatti—aka Chief Spreading Bull, aka Creepy Porn Lawyer has been using you. But then again, that’s sort of the story of a porn actresses life isn’t it?

Worst day today: Elizabeth Warren. Tomorrow is Avenatti’s turn.

An award of attorney’s fee is usually based on 1) frivolous claim or 2) misconduct in litigation. My guess is that the judge is annoyed with Avenatti’s antics. If he has that case on contingency, he’s left holding the bag.

    In this case it was simply a decision to apply Texas’s SLAPP law.

      amatuerwrangler in reply to Milhouse. | October 16, 2018 at 11:17 am

      Uh, Millie… The case was filed and heard in Los Angeles. LA is in California. Its in Federal court. Please explain your comment.

        Yes, the case was filed in federal court in NY and then transferred to CA, but the case was decided under the TX SLAPP law. That’s choice of law for you.

        In fact the reason Avenatti filed the case in NY in the first place was because he hoped the court would apply NY’s SLAPP law, which is pretty much nonexistent. But the judge in LA decided that the NY court would have applied the TX law, so he should too.

Avenetti has to be a Trump plant.
First he drops the ridiculous gangrape client on Kavanaugh, which only served to place the stamp of political hitjob on every allegation…then he bankrupts his primary client because you know Trump has a $5000 and hour legal team working on this.
He couldn’t do a better job if he were on Trumps payroll.

    Trump gets the media to attack him for praising Gen. Lee for free. Why wouldn’t the principle hold true for lawyers? His superpower is to make them hate him so much they lose their minds.

    then he bankrupts his primary client because you know Trump has a $5000 and hour legal team working on this.

    Perhaps he does, but she doesn’t have to pay anything like that. She only has to pay what the judge decides are reasonable fees. Which is still going to hurt.

To tom_swift: battered men’s shelter, an attorney firm handling divorces for male clients only, or, a charity fir prostate cancer research. Where’s OUR ribbon?

The fun bags or the brown paper one? The world waits with bated breath.

Daniels was ordered to pay Trump’s legal fees.

Which should be a useful deterrent to this sort of adventurism.

Unfortunately, the old homily “crime doesn’t pay” has been obsoleted by GoFundMe. If Ford’s recent million-dollar windfall wasn’t just a disguised prearranged payment for her services to the Party, a similar flood of ill-donated gains could be headed Stormy’s way.

Daniels is looking rather frumpy in the above photo.

Fake boobs. Fake lawsuit.l

To paraphrase David Letterman, “why do I have an uncomfortable feeling that I overinflated my car tires this morning?”

With Avenatti as her lawyer, how could she have ever thought anything could go wrong? Oh, “thought” is the key word.

Sad, Strormy needed the money for a new boob job.

    I’m thinking that at this point in her life that a reductoplasty is indicated. That spinal column isn’t getting more rigid with time.

Back to Pornhub for Stormy.

Horseface, wow, nothing like trolling. Sarah Jessica Parker has her beat.

Can they garnish strip club tips?

I think Trumps phone autocorrected the spelling from Whores Face.
