Court won't revive porn star's defamation suit against Trump

Source: Omaha World Herald-AP

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Monday rejected an appeal from porn star Stormy Daniels, who sought to revive a defamation lawsuit she filed against former President Donald Trump.

The justices did not comment in leaving in place a lower court ruling dismissing the case.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, alleges she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and was paid $130,000 as part of a nondisclosure agreement days before the 2016 presidential election. She sued him for defamation after he dismissed her claims of being threatened to keep quiet about the tryst as a “total con job.”

A federal judge dismissed the lawsuit in 2018 and ordered Daniels to pay nearly $300,000 in attorneys’ fees.

3. No, it was because it was a bad case in the first place.

Ambulance-chasing, now disbarred lawyer Michael Avenatti screwed it up so badly that Daniels got stuck with attorneys' fees. You really have to mess up for that to happen.

5. Can't spin it that way

They were just upholding a unanimous decision of a three-judge panel of the 9th circuit with two Clinton appointees and one Obama appointee.

Better to just assume that just because you oppose Trump doesn't mean that you have a legal case.

I think people get so hung up on how scummy Trump is that they make the mistake of thinking that anyone who opposes Trump is decent.
