Pornstar Stormy Daniels has suffered another defeat at the hands of Trump’s legal team. The adult film star was trying to sue Trump claiming his actions were illegal when it came to their supposed agreement.
“A lawsuit by adult film star Stormy Daniels against President Donald Trump over a non-disparagement agreement has been tossed out of federal court.
US District Judge James Otero says the suit, which sought to invalidate the $130,000 agreement that kept Daniels from speaking publicly about her allegations of an affair with Trump ahead of the 2016 election, should be sent back to California Superior Court. In his ruling, Otero says the suit “lacks subject matter jurisdiction.”
Otero also said “the suit was irrelevant after Trump and his former personal lawyer agreed not to penalize Daniels for violating a nondisclosure agreement she signed in exchange for a $130,000 payment.”
“By remanding the case back to where it was first filed, Otero made it clear the case is over.”
“Trump’s attorney, Charles Harder, told CNN in a statement, “The US District Court confirmed today that the claim against the President has no basis in law. Combined with the attorneys’ fees and sanctions award in the President’s favor totaling $293,000, the President has achieved total victory.”
“Clifford’s attorney would claim victory if he got run over by a bus,” added Brent Blakely, Cohen’s attorney. “Clifford has lost every argument in these lawsuits since day one — her defamation cases have been dismissed and now the Court has granted EC’s motion regarding subject matter jurisdiction.”
This case seems like it was a waste of time. Trump has not sued Stormy for running her mouth about the supposed affair. He should have a while back but that would give her story the validity that she wants. As it stands Daniel’s career has been revitalized since she came out with her slanderous story against Trump.
