Judge dismisses Stormy Daniels' defamation lawsuit against Trump

Judge dismisses Stormy Daniels’ defamation suit against Trump, orders her to pay legal fees

Pres. Defeats Daniels' Defamation Case

He called it a 'total con job'.

Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, says she had a sexual relationship Mr Trump in 2006.

Donald Trump's tweets can sometimes move markets, antagonize domestic rivals and global allies and put the spotlight on friends and foes but turns out today that the social media platform cannot keep the President in court with Stormy Daniels.

The Wall Street Journal first reported Eric Trump's role in legal response to Daniels' claims, which Fox has since confirmed.

"Instead, Mr Trump sought to use language to challenge Plaintiff's account of her affair and the threat that she purportedly received in 2011".

Federal District Judge James Otero had suggested during a late September hearing that he was skeptical of Daniels' claim on First Amendment grounds.

Otero presides over both lawsuits.

The judge's ruling also entitles Trump to collect attorneys' fees from Daniels, but the amount that Daniels would need to pay will be determined later, Harder said.

Daniels' lawsuit over a hush-money deal is pending.

On the drive toward Panama City, the president could see houses smashed by trees, bent billboards and a demolished trailer park. Rick Scott said state officials still "do not know enough" about the fate of those who stayed behind in the region.

In an interview with CBS News earlier this year, Stormy Daniels said a stranger approached her while she was with her young daughter and threatened her.

She then released a sketch of the man.

Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen plead guilty in August to breaking campaign finance laws in order to make the $130,000 payment to Clifford, and accused the president of ordering him to make the payment.

She explained: "If you're the president, and you're a parent, you're going to stick your child in the middle of cleaning up something for the president of the United States that has to do with an affair your father had - allegedly - with a porn star four months after your half-brother was born". Trump tweeted in April.

"Trump's contrary claims are as deceptive as his claims about the inauguration attendance", Avenatti tweeted Monday night.

'She has reviewed, Jake, a number of photographs over the last few weeks, couple weeks, actually and we've narrowed it down, ' the lawyer said.

Still, Daniels doesn't see herself as "anybody's hero", The Cut writes.

Tapper asked why Avenatti and Daniels wanted the public's help if they already narrowed it down.

Daniels told 60 Minutes that she did not report the encounter to police at the time because she was scared. Trump later cast doubt on her alleged parking lot incident.
