A federal judge has ordered porn star Stormy Daniels to pay President Donald Trump (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/donald_trump/index.html) $293,000 in legal fees after an earlier dismissing her defamation lawsuit against him.

Something tells me that Stormy will get the last laugh.

Ouch - back to quits.

Now that everything is out in the open, public knowledge and all that, does she still have to keep her mouth shut?

Lets just say that Trump's legal exposure well outstrips any exposure Stormy's contemplated...

Yep, that's it, blame her. Maybe Trump should have kept his dick in his pants?

Poor Stormy should have realised that dealing with Trump, you get screwed in more ways than one.

In Stormy's line of work, periodically she needs to open her mouth.

I suspect she was poorly served by Michael Avenatti... his advice to pursue a defamation suit against Trump was probably motivated by HIS need for media attention. She should sue Avenatti for malpractice.

I disagree, Norman. Avenatti argued that it is possible to defame a person's reputation, regardless of their profession. I think that's accurate. I don't know, but can easily imagine that Daniels could have a fine reputation within her industry for truth-telling and fair dealing in her line of work as a sex video producer/director, and perhaps also in her personal life. It is entirely possible to defame this positive aspect of her reputation, however one feels about sex work. That's exactly what Trump and Giuliani argued - that precisely because she worked in the sex industry, she had no reputation left to lose.

Should she have kept quiet after receiving the 'hush' money originally?


What happens now with the Court order to pay the $293,000 in legal fees? Appeal/declare bankruptcy/other?

I doubt that she's bankrupt, and were there any risk of that, I suspect that a "gofundme" page would swiftly compensate. It is only and exactly because she (and on her behalf, Avenatti) launched their public and legal campaign that we have learned of the most consequential felony violations of campaign finance laws in American history. The reason for the hush money payments may make folks squeamish, but the fact of them is IMO impeachable.

Michael Avenatti:


Michael Avenatti, Daniels’ attorney and a vocal critic of the president, has filed an appeal in the case. On Twitter late Tuesday he defended his client, saying she would “never have to pay a dime.”

“Not one penny. It is the end of the first quarter, not the end of the game,” Avenatti wrote in response to a critic. “And if you actually read any of the filings in the [nondisclosure agreement] case, you would realize they are going to owe at least $1,500,000.”
