Stormy Daniels is likely a name you’ve heard countless times weaponized against the former President, Donald Trump.
Unfortunately for the Porn Star, she now owes the President $300,000 in attorney fees after the failed defamation suit that she launched against him. After losing, she attempted to have the lower court overturned but the federal appeals court rejected her bid.
CNBC reported, 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 failed to file a notice of appeal within a 30-day deadline of a federal judge granting the fees to Trump.
Daniels claims that she once had sex with Trump, but he completely denies it. Somehow, she ended up being the one suing for defamation despite her levying claims against him, and not the other way around.
Daniels’ former lawyer, Michael Avenatti had actually stolen roughly the same amount from the adult actress during his employment with her. Avenatti has now been convicted on felony charges.
Trump says that the lawsuit was purely a political stunt, meant to drag him down. I am pleased that my lawyers were able to bring it to a successful conclusion after the court fully rejected her appeal, now all I have to do is wait for all of the money she owes me.” Trump said.
Not long after, Daniel’s tweeted; “I will go to jail before I pay a penny.”
