Back in March, attorneys defending Mr. Trump and his personal attorney Michael Cohen filed to move Stormy Daniels’ lawsuit against them to federal court, claiming Daniels could owe in excess of $20 million for violating a 2016 nondisclosure agreement. On Friday, the lawsuit was rejected by a judge and sent back to state court where it was filed.
Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti taunted Cohen and his lawyer on Twitter, saying:
‘The Court just ordered the case we filed against Davidson and Cohen returned to State Ct., finding that Cohen should have never sent it to Federal Ct. More winning by Cohen and his attys. So much winning! #Basta’
Avenatti is suing Trump and Cohen over a nondisclosure agreement related to her alleged affair with Mr. Trump in 2006. The Davidson mentioned in the tweet who is being sued by Avenatti is Daniels’ ex-lawyer Keith Davidson.
Here’s what Twitter had to say:
On Monday, according to The Washington Post:
‘A federal judge on Tuesday declined to issue a gag order against Stormy Daniels’s lawyer but said the adult film actress’s lawsuit against President Trump and his former personal attorney will remain on hold for an additional 45 days.’
At the time Cohen’s attorney filed to have the lawsuit moved to federal court, Avenatti tweeted:
‘They are now attempting to remove this case to federal ct in order to increase their chances that the matter will be decided in private arbitration, thus hiding the truth from the public.‘The fact that a sitting president is pursuing over $20M in bogus ‘damages’ against a private citizen, who is only trying to tell the public what really happened, is remarkable. Likely unprecedented in our history. We are NOT going away and we will NOT be intimidated.’
