Stormy Daniels Seeks New Judge in Trump Lawsuit

Stormy Daniels Seeks New Judge in Trump Lawsuit

Adult film star Stormy Daniels has canceled her trip to Detroit due to an illness, her manager said.

"We do not believe it is appropriate for her to preside over this case, which obviously involves the president, in light of this fact", said Michael Avenatti, who represents Daniels.

In case you missed it, which would be hard to do, Daniels was allegedly paid off to keep quiet about claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006, when he was already married to now first lady Melania Trump, who at the time had just given birth to their son, Barron.

Trump denies the affair.

An arbitrator has reaffirmed that Daniel's nondisclosure agreement with Trump, tied to the $130,000 payment from Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen, was binding and issued a temporary restraining order. Cohen did not explain why he made the payment or say whether Trump was aware of it.

The letter also asked that the president's lawyers agree that neither Trump nor the shell company Cohen used to pay Clifford would attempt to block the broadcast of an interview Clifford taped with CBS News' "60 Minutes" program last week.

A lawyer for Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, reportedly put in the request on Friday, claiming that because Judge Elizabeth Feffer of Los Angeles Superior Court is now seeking a federal appointment, it would not be appropriate for her to make a judgment in a case involving the president. The White House also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Daniels sued Trump last week, contending that the nondisclosure agreement should be voided because Trump never signed it.

"The president has addressed these directly and made very well clear that none of these allegations are true", press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during a White House briefing on March 6.

As reported by CNN, Stormy's real name is Stephanie Clifford, and her attorney argued the validity of the contract that was signed via Cohen's private LLC prior to the presidential election.

Avenatti told CNN's "New Day" last week that Clifford would "absolutely" pay back the $130,000 if she was allowed to speak about the alleged affair.
