Judge Dismisses Stormy Daniels’ Defamation Lawsuit Against Trump

| October 16, 2018

Legal Insurrection reports on Monday, a federal judge dismissed Stormy Daniels’s defamation lawsuit against President Trump. When Trump suggested the porn actress lied about being told to keep quiet about their alleged relationship, Daniels then claimed Trump defamed her.

Not only was the complaint dismissed, but Daniels was ordered to pay Trump’s legal fees.

Fox News tweets:

JUST IN: A judge has dismissed a defamation lawsuit brought by Stormy Daniels against President Trump, rules Daniels is liable for the president’s attorney’s fees.

And the WaPo chimes in:

A federal judge on Monday dismissed a lawsuit from adult film actress Stormy Daniels that claimed President Trump defamed her when he suggested she had lied about being threatened to keep quiet about their alleged relationship.

Federal District Judge S. James Otero in Los Angeles had indicated during a late September hearing that he was skeptical of Daniels’s claim on First Amendment grounds. The ruling ordered Daniels, whose given name is Stephanie Clifford, to pay Trump’s legal fees.

Trump attorney Charles Harder cheered Otero’s decision and said the amount of legal fees owed would be determined later.

“No amount of spin or commentary by Stormy Daniels or her lawyer, Mr. Avenatti, can truthfully characterize today’s ruling in any way other than total victory for President Trump and total defeat for Stormy Daniels,” Harder said in an emailed statement.

That makes yet another embarrassing loss for the creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti, who was most recently denied an audience with the Senate Judiciary Committee. And it places Trump in the nearly unheard of situation where a hooker pays the John.

    Michael Avenatti is a complete scumbag, through and through, ambulance chaser, shit head, fuck basket, turd, anus tonguing, whore. Allegedly.
    Well, you can’t sue someone over their opinion, man.
    Apparently the Judge here was of sound mind and good character.

      Why don’t you tell us how you really feel Chip NASA. Don’t hold back. A strong message can always follow :>))

    • desert says:

      Same description fits a whole covey of lawyers! You have to throw away anything that resembles honor, truth, integrity to be a lawyer in my humble opinion! And yes indeed, I have dealt with a bunch of them! As for Storm Queen, she doesn’t care, she got what she wanted…NOTORIETY! again imho!

  2. JacktheJarhead says:

    I guess Stormy is going to have to get more stripping gigs to pay the legal fees. She better hurry up and cash in because her 15 minutes of fame is rapidly running out. I doubt Avenatti is going to cover them, she should have kept her mouth shut. Now President Trump is going to sue her for breach of contract and probably win. So, make sure that g-string is clean and the platform shoes are shined because she is going to be taking off her clothes for a LOOOOOOONG time!

    • SFC D says:

      If she keeps her mouth shut, you won’t make any money…

    • desert says:

      Not THAT long…she is already getting long in the tooth! people will stop paying any day now ! 😉

    • MSG Eric says:

      When Avenatti went on Tucker Carlson’s show Tucker bashed him aplenty about that. “You’re making millions living it up, meanwhile your client is having to do strip dancing on tour to pay the bills?” Which he had no good response for. Not one.

      An ambulance chaser extraordinaire. When even the Dems turn on you because you messed up big time and their schemes took a hit for it, you know you’re in trouble.

      He might have to start dancing himself to pay the bills.

    Those aren’t her real boobs, you know. She had them done. So quit staring at them.

    Oh, the irony! Trump not only gets his money back, the pron star’s getting into the state where she may need major surgery to keep up her lovely unwrinkled skin and her nose job.

    • ChipNASA says:

      This morning, I was beaten up by a busty woman in an elevator.

      I was staring at her boobs when she said, “Would you please press one?”

      So I did.

      I don’t remember much after that.

    • SFC D says:

      She gets daily facials to keep her skin looking smooth and creamy 😉

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        I’ve been told that Preparation H is a wonderful and inexpensive substitute for facial plastic surgery.

        • akpual says:

          No shit.

        • Club Manager, USA ret. says:

          You have just hit close to home EX-PH2. Preparation H works great on under the eye wrinkles but I was cautioned to be very careful not to get it too close to the eye or in the eye. I use some before leaving home for an important meeting or gig where they will be taking photos, or there will be young hotties so I can act like the old fool I am as opposed to the young fool I was.

        • rgr769 says:

          Wonder if the boys in the big house use it to tighten up a loose anoose after an evening of excessive cell block romance.

    • USMC Steve says:

      She may have to sell them to cover legal fees.

      They’re real enough I could squeeze ’em….

    …just waiting for IDC SARC to post “I’d hit it.”

  6. RGR 4-78 says:

    So, Miss daniels law suit is “tits up”.

    • David says:

      Short of a trip to zero gravity or surgery that’s the only way she’ll ever be described like that again.

  7. USMC Steve says:

    I guess it would be fair to say the porn whore got screwed again.

  8. Ex-PH2 says:

    Did you guys know that human fat from liposuction clinics makes the best soap? And it’s frequently used instead of silicone to enhance female curvature?

    You didn’t know that? Well, now you’re been enlightened. It’s probably a good idea to use your own, and store it in the freezer until you need it.

  9. Sparks says:

    So I guess Stormy will be back to working, on her back shall we say. Mattress demo jobs are in high demand I hear.

  10. Mayhem says:

    Y’all need to stop hatin’ on my gurl Stormy. She only does this job while she puts herself through “Brain Doctorin’ school.

  11. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    And our president wastes no time responding….

    “Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.” @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!”

    Based on this tweet are we now to believe the President bangs women he considers horse faced before paying them 130K to shut up?

    I think we all knew that calling a whore a liar would probably not be much of a defamatory statement, I also suspect she might lose the NDA suit as well…

    What wonderful times we live in, where a three time serial adulterer and his porn star whore can have a public fight over the size of his pecker and the nature of their adulterous sexual encounters…


    • ChipNASA says:

      “Bill did it first. But now with MORE Violence AND RAPE!!!”

      I’m not even going to mention Thomas Jefferson.
      Bringing up stuff that happened 245 years ago. That’s like, someone my ex-wife would do.

      • MrFace says:

        Bringing up TJ?!?!?

        Too soon, bro.

      • Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

        Yeah the logical extension of all that right here, right now…

        Just once I’d like to read a tweet that said something like, “As predicted the judge found no merit in Ms Daniels suit. She and her attorney have promulgated a frivolous suit for far too long and today justice was served.”

        When you fuck whores and pay them off you hardly have any moral high ground to call names, nor when you are a known lying sack of shit who cheats on his wives should you pretend to be a man of honor.

        Sure Clinton did it, he’s a lying sack of shit as well….that’s the problem with whataboutism….you keep lowering the bar and soon men and women without honor are considered the kinds of people who will make the nation great again…yeah for us…

        • MSG Eric says:

          Which politicians have been doing for centuries.

          Trump is just a lot more public and straight-forward about it.

          Meanwhile, Bill and Hillary are on yet ANOTHER “us us us!” tour to make more money. Where are the riots and sit-ins and people disturbing them while they eat in a restaurant because he’s a sexual predator?

        • GDContractor says:

          Leave me alone VOV. I’m baitin.

    • MrBill says:

      The President should learn how to use a semicolon. He just referred to himself as a total con.

    • MrBill says:

      Someone on Twitter suggested a title for a book about this affair. “Horseface and Mushroom Dick: A Love Story”.

  12. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    I got a kick out of this story from the very beginning. Defamation is a falsehood that damages one’s reputation. As I mentioned in the ROT, she’s a professional whore, a slut, and has been filmed, and makes movies in which she has anal, oral, and vaginal sex with men and takes a strap-on and a good lickin’ from women. And she sued to protect her reputation.

    • AW1Ed says:

      Only in ‘Murica, Cav, the part that religiously watches Dr. Phil and The View.

    • Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

      Because the lying sack of shit who fucked her and paid her off called her a liar…she’d have been far smarter to stick to the NDA suit, if it went as Trump claims where he had no knowledge of the payoff to keep her mouth shut the NDA is probably not valid as he wasn’t a party to an NDA about him.

      But we elected a serial adulterer who has a casual relationship with the truth, still better than Hillary to be certain, so now we get to see all this winning…what a great deal.

      • 2/17 Air Cav says:

        Adultery and power go hand in hand, whether it’s a CEO or a chief executive. JFK, Ike, FDR, and LBJ all had their steady boinky-boinks. The most infamous was that guy Bill Clinton, who is alleged to have raped at least one woman. Many presidents, in addition to those five, have been said to go at it with slave women and one president had his favorite squeeze committed to a nut house and their child put up for adoption. There is nothing new under the sun. The moral life is not a prerequisite to public life, to be sure. I suppose Trump is like what a lot of people say about perverts: If they can do the job…

        • Hondo says:


          Last time I checked, the job title was “President” – not “Pastor”.

        • Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

          I never said it was…but it is telling who we give a pass to in this country and who we decide has told a lie that’s beyond the pale…

          It just proves that both sides love their own liars while despising the liars on the other side of the aisle which reinforces my notion that the lesser of two evils remains an evil.

          After Trump no one can complain about liars in the Oval office regardless of party but they will because most people are serious hypocrites.

      • David says:

        “Serial adulterer who has a casual relationship with the truth”…could you narrow that down a bit?

  13. Stacy0311 says:

    The best part is that Trump is entitled to legal fees. So everybody who contributed to her GoFundMe (yes I spelled it correctly pervs)is now in effect paying Trump’s lawyer…

    • Forest Green says:


    • CWORet says:

      Pretty much el facto-mundo. Last I heard the fund was up 587k. Not a bad haul. I image some may re-cant their contribution, but I suspect a whole lot of that funding came from deep pockets that may not want to be outed for contributing in the first place. Mainly because she lost.

      • Hondo says:

        Why do I have the feeling that the POTUS’ legal team knows to the penny the amount in that GoFundMe account?

  14. Mayhem says:

    oooooohhh buuuuuuuurrn !

  15. Daisy Cutter says:

    To me, it just seems like this all boiled down to a mutually agreed upon transaction, then later she violated the NDA because she wanted to exploit more money out of the situation.

    Come on, guys, tell me what [fill in the blank – see below] is even worth $130,000?

    She got greedy, it didn’t work, end of story.

    Q: What’s a four letter word for ‘snatch?’

    A: Grab

    • Thunderstixx says:

      Use your imagination on that one, especially in this case.
      How can you possibly defame a known prostitute, slut, whore and only God knows what else that dumbass is…
      Oh, I really don’t want to know….
      She’ll be lying her trade until 2030 at least to pay this bill !!!
      She will also not be getting as much as she did prior to this kerfuffle as everybody has seen way too much of her already…

  16. Skyjumper says:

    1st, Stormy Daniels’ defamation lawsuit against Trump is dismissed and now today this.

    Dennis Hof, Nevada brothel owner, dead at 72.

    Stormy Daniels has been on more wieners than Heinz Ketchup and French’s Mustard put together and she thought she would appear credible? GIMME A BREAK!!!😆😆😆😆😆

    • Skyjumper says:

      Thanks, API!
      Just came in to the house from my shop, grabbed a cup of hot, fresh coffee and then read your post. Clamped my lips together real hard in order to not spew over my keyboard/ monitor. Was pretty successful, unless you consider that some blew out my nose! (laughing)

    • Thunderstixx says:

      I needed a spew alert on this one too…
      Shame on you !!!
      Great !!!

  19. RetiredDevilDoc8404 says:

    A porn star loses a defamation of character suit… I said to my wife that suit had a snowball’s chance in Hell from the start – all you would have to do is enter a portion of one of her movies into evidence to impeach her “character” and state she’s done far worse on her own to defame her own character and you’ve won. That whole whores who live in glass houses thing comes back to bite her in the ass… now her lawyer, that pinhead needs to be disbarred. Too bad a certain failed lawyer/pilot/phony honorary CPO isn’t still around to fly Avenatti around to his gigs with Slimey and Sweaty his two best “clients”.

  20. CDR_D says:

    Looks like Trump ends up getting paid stud fees. Cool!

  21. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    “In 2018, Avenatti’s law firm was subjected to a $10 million judgment in U.S. bankruptcy court.[47] Avenatti has also defaulted on a $440,000 judgment in back taxes, penalties, and interest that he was personally obligated to pay under another bankruptcy settlement. The U.S. Attorney’s office asserted in court that a motion seeking payment would soon be filed against Avenatti.[47] Eagan Avenatti had been in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings and, in December 2017, had agreed to pay $4.8 million in unpaid fees to a former partner, $2 million in back taxes, and $1 million to other creditors.[48] In June 2018, the former partner filed a motion in U.S. bankruptcy court asking for a lien on any and all legal fees Avenatti’s firm might collect, up to $10 million, from clients in 54 cases including his representation of Stormy Daniels.[49]” Wiki

    Sounds like Avenatti can use a good lawyer.

    This whole thing reminds of a story I heard about a prostitute that didn’t know she’d been raped ’till the check bounced…
