This is a total defeat for Stormy and her creepy lawyer.

Looks like Avenatti and Stormy have been ordered to pay Trumps legal fees too.

this only deals with the defamation claim regarding when she was supposedly threatened to keep quiet by an unknown person.  this is much different from the other issues going on between her and Trump.

from the article
"Avenatti called the ruling ďlimitedĒ on Twitter and said it did not affect Danielsís primary case against Trump and his former attorney Michael Cohen, which seeks to invalidate her 2016 nondisclosure agreement.

ďDanielsí other claims against Trump and Cohen proceed unaffected,Ē Avenatti wrote in a tweet he later appeared to have deleted.

He said in a second tweet that any fees Trump might be awarded from the defamation case would ďbe dwarfed by the fees he and Cohen will be required to pay in connection with the NDA case.Ē

Federal prosecutors in New York have arrested and charged celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti with attempting to extort more than $20 million in payments from Nike by threatening to use his ability to garner publicity to inflict substantial financial and reputational harm on the company if his demands were not met.

Avenatti, 48, had previously represented adult film star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President Donald Trump and his former lawyer Michael Cohen.

According to the complaint, Avenatti threatened to hold a press conference on the eve of Nike's quarterly earnings call and the start of the NCAA men's basketball tournament at which he would announce allegations of misconduct by Nike.

"Avenatti stated that he would refrain from holding the press conference and harming Nike only if Nike made a payment of $1.5 million to a client of Avenatti's in possession of information damaging to Nike ... and agreed to 'retain' Avenatti and [an unidentified co-conspirator] to conduct an 'internal investigation' -- an investigation that Nike did not request, for which Avenatti and [the co-conspirator] demanded to be paid, at a minimum, between $15 [million] and $25 million," the complaint said.

Lol. You hate to see it. Apparently more charges coming too. The quotes are lovely and also not postable here.
But I do wonder what info they had on Nike, from the Nike attorneys' half of the conversation they were legit willing to pay for it.

"The co-conspirator in that matter is attorney Mark Geragos, two people familiar with the matter said," the Journal reported. "According to the complaint filed in New York, Mr. Avenatti and Mr. Geragos, the alleged co-conspirator, met with lawyers for Nike in New York on March 19 and threatened to release damaging information unless the company agreed to pay the two lawyers millions of dollars and another $1.5 million to the client Avenatti claimed to represent."

Geragos is a CNN legal analyst and attorney for Jussie Smollett. 

Between Avanetti / Geragos / Cohen / Guiliani, the last few months haven't reflected well on the legal profession.

Trump will have his hands full very soon, it seems Reebok is considering suing him for slandering their Brand by wearing New Balance sneakers for a photo opportunity in the Whitehouse. Representatives close to Reebok have stated that this is an impeachable offense under the US Sneaker code of ethics and they are informing Whitehouse Counsel of their intent.

When informed of this, Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez commented..."Seeeeeeee he's baaad."

I guess Trump will just have to make "MAGA Brand' the new 'it' company.

I can only imagine the rage that would cause.

For the record: I can't stand Trump and think he's a garbage human being, but it'd seriously funny

Avenatti is scum. Hope he goes away like Cohen someday. From representing Swetnick in the Kavanaugh hearings, to being involved in the Trump/Daniels payoff, to his stupid suit repping Daniels in this defamation suit, to the Nike blackmail, Avenatti has proven he is scum and represents some pretty disgusting people.

Reading a little more, that might've just been the attorneys, who were apparently already talking to law enforcement, trying to get Avenatti to clearly distinguish between the totally legal payment to his client and the extortion attempt. Still would like to know what the info was. Grifting off the Zion thing?

Avenatti continues to be a giant scumbag who deserves to be disbarred and imprisoned:

When Michael  Avenattiís name pops up these days, you can be pretty sure itís not for a good reason.

The embattled attorney became even more embattled over the weekend when the L.A. Times reported that he took a significant portion of a $3 million settlement that was meant for one of his clients, Alexis Gardner, from her ex-boyfriend, Hassan Whiteside.

Whiteside, who plays for the Miami Heat, made the settlement deal with Gardner after she contacted him about a potential lawsuit. Itís not known what Gardner, who is an actress and barista according to the Times, would have sued him for.

Avenatti was entitled to $1 million of the $3 million settlement to cover legal fees. To meet the terms of the deal, Whiteside wired Avenatti the first payment of $2.75 million, which Avenatti was then supposed to pass on to Gardner. However, the settlement never made it to her. Prosecutors allege that Avenatti hid the payment and took $2.75 million to buy a share of a private jet.j
