Stormy Daniels Loses Appeal, Owes Trump Almost $300,000 in Legal Fees
“federal appeals court rejected her bid to overturn a lower court decision in her failed defamation lawsuit against him”
Do you remember how much the media loved Stormy Daniels and her lawyer Michael Avenatti? Well, now Avenatti is facing prison and a judge just told Stormy Daniels that she owes Trump almost $300,000.
It’s enough to make you believe karma really exists.
Professor Jacobson covered the original verdict here.

Porn star Stormy Daniels loses appeal in Trump case, vows ‘I will go to jail before I pay a penny’ of $300K
Porn star Stormy Daniels is on the hook to pay former President Donald Trump nearly $300,000 in attorneys’ fees after a federal appeals court rejected her bid to overturn a lower court decision in her failed defamation lawsuit against him.
Friday’s ruling, which Trump bragged about in a statement issued Monday night, likely puts to bed a yearslong legal feud between Daniels and the ex-president related to her claim that they had sex one time in 2006.
That feud has featured both of their former lawyers being convicted of felonies that were connected to the effects of her claim. Trump denies having had sex with the adult film actress.
“I will go to jail before I pay a penny,” Daniels tweeted Monday.
Daniels on Tuesday in a lengthy statement posted on Twitter said Trump had won the case “on a technicality” because her then-lawyer Michael Avenatti failed to promptly file a notice of appeal in her defamation suit.
In its decision Friday, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit said it had no jurisdiction over Daniels’ appeal of the attorneys’ fees issue because she had failed to file a notice of appeal within a 30-day deadline of a federal judge granting the fees to Trump.
She’ll go to jail rather than paying? Fine. Maybe she can share a cell with her former lawyer.
Trump is taking a well-deserved victory lap.
Madeleine Hubbard of Just the News has details:
Former President Donald Trump on Monday announced the court ruled in his favor in Stormy Daniels’ libel lawsuit against him and she will have to pay him nearly $300,000 as a result.
Trump announced the win on Twitter through his spokeswoman Liz Harrington.
“The 9th Circuit just issued a final ruling in the Stephanie Clifford (aka Stormy Daniels) frivolous lawsuit case against me brought by her disgraced lawyer, Michael Avenatti, upholding the lower court ruling that she owes me nearly $300,000 in attorney fees, costs, and sanctions (not including appeal costs),” Trump wrote…
“As I have stated many times throughout the years, I never had an affair with Stormy Daniels, nor would I ever have wanted to. The ruling was a total and complete victory and vindication for, and of me,” he said.
“The lawsuit was a purely political stunt that never should have been started, or allowed to happen, and I am pleased that my lawyers were able to bring it to a successful conclusion after the court fully rejected her appeal,” he said. “Now all I have to do is wait for all of the money she owes me.”
This is a good point.

The media embraced these grifter clowns. Now they’ll ignore them as they fall flat on their faces.

I guess every swamp comes with its own swamp gas.
She owes him huh? Maybe take it in trade.
Who would want her? I hope that Trump starts seizing her assets. I did that ton a few people over the years. It is really funny when you drain and account or two.
She probably has little to nothing in assets. But take what she has.
I’d prefer to see her in jail. I figure about 50K per year = 6 years.
Plus interest, another 3 years ought to do it.
Our former President should graciously forgive the debt and declare victory. Wrestling with a pig only gets you dirty, and the pig will enjoy it.
But if the pig truly appreciates the intrinsic value of the passage of time, the forgiveness will forever alter the effects of the enjoyment.
Likening a con woman getting nailed by the courts for the costs she created to wrestling with a pig is childish.
The woman is a fraud that tried to harm a president. She should be let off of nothing.
$300K? That’s a lot of male uh well.
Garnish her wages — Trump gets paid whenever she turns a trick.
“Garnish her wages” – with a little sprig of parsley?
A sprinkle of penicillin.
“likely puts to bed a yearslong legal feud between Daniels and the ex-president”
I see what you did there.
Stormy Daniels and Michael Avenatti are made for each other, gutter dwellers.
$300K. That’s a lot of lap dances.
Now we know what she is going back to doing porn.
Trump should definitely not seize her assets. That’s what got him into trouble to begin with. Stormy should just pay this debt over time in crumpled dollar bills.
She’s getting on in years. Some of those bills may be confederate.
CNN and MSDNC were pushing Avenatti for president.
I used to think that was hilarious (and it is) but now I can’t help but thinking we would be better off with Avenatti and Daniels as POTUS and VP than the clown show we have now.
Must be the passage of time…
The same clowns pushed a literal mental retard and his whore sidekick, and look where that’s getting us.
What incensed Democrats is that the sex was consensual.
It sounds like she needs a new bottle of glitter, a few thongs and pasties and to be prepare to dance on a LOT of poles.
