Judge Rules Stormy Daniels Must Pay Trump $290,000 In Legal Fees
Reuters reported that adult film actress Stormy Daniels must pay more than $290,000 to reimburse President Donald Trump for legal fees he spent defending himself in a defamation lawsuit she brought against him over a tweet.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, lost her defamation lawsuit in October.
A federal judge in Los Angeles said the president’s tweet was protected by the freedom of speech clause of the U.S. Constitution.
At a hearing last week, Trump's attorneys requested nearly $800,000 in legal fees and sanctions.
