WINNING! Stormy Daniels Lawsuit Dismissed, Trump Entitled To Legal Fees
The judge handling the case of adult film star Stormy Daniels against now-President Donald Trump has dismissed the case according to an attorney for Trump. What’s more, Donald Trump is entitled to legal fees from Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford).
A statement from Trump’s legal team reads:
United States District Judge S. James Otero issued an order and ruling today dismissing Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against President Trump. The ruling also states that the President is entitled to an award of his attorneys’ fees against Stormy Daniels. A copy of the ruling is attached. 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. The amount of the award for President Trump’s attorneys’ fees will be determined at a later date.
According to her attorney, Michael Avenatti in a statement released via Twitter: “We will appeal the dismissal of the defamation cause of action and are confident in a reversal,” while stating that Daniels’ other claims against Trump and Cohen “proceed unaffected.”
Re Judge’s limited ruling: Daniels’ other claims against Trump and Cohen proceed unaffected. Trump’s contrary claims are as deceptive as his claims about the inauguration attendance.
We will appeal the dismissal of the defamation cause of action and are confident in a reversal.

Just last week, Trump’s legal team made the case that it simply did not make sense for them to continue the arguments in court over a $130,000 received by the plaintiff since she nullified the non-disclosure agreement that was set in place by Michael Cohen.
The lawsuit is moot because Trump has consented that the agreement, as she has claimed, was never formed because he didn’t sign it and he has agreed not to try to enforce it, Trump said in his court filing. The company created by Cohen to facilitate the non-disclosure agreement, which initially said Clifford faced more than $20 million in damages for talking, said in September that it wouldn’t sue to enforce the deal. –Yahoo
