“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.
