Porn star Stormy Daniels ordered to pay Trump $300,000 in legal fees after court rejects her appeal in defamation case

It was a shocking one for Pornstar, Stormy Daniels as she has been ordered by a federal court to pay US former president, Donald Trump $300,000 in attorney fees after it rejected her appeal to another’s court ruling in her defamation case against Donald Trump.

The ruling by the US Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit is coming as a result of an earlier ruling by a lower court that rejected Daniels’ defamation suit against Trump after he denied her claims that they both had sex in 2006.

Daniels had claimed Trump cheated on his wife, Melania with her back in 2006 and then paid her off to try and secure his 2016 US election victory.

Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer for ten years, was sentenced to three years in prison in 2018 for, among other offenses, paying Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Trump.

The payment to shut out Daniels was made soon before the 2016 president election, and it goes against campaign finance laws. In a statement issued on Monday night, March 21, Trump said that ‘all I have to do is wait for all of the money she owes me.’

The lawsuit was a purely political stunt that never should have started, or allowed to happen, and I am happy that my lawyers were able to bring it to a successful conclusion after the court fully rejected her appeal,‘ Trump said, according to CNBC.

The Ninth Circuit US court of appeals ruled on Monday that it had no jurisdiction over Daniel’s appeal as she missed a 30-day deadline to appeal after a lower court first ordered her to pay the attorney fees to Trump. Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, has since written a book about Trump and embarked on nationwide stripping tours.
