United States judge dismisses Stormy Daniels defamation suit against Trump

Judge tosses Stormy Daniels defamation suit against Trump More

It began when Trump responded to the news that a federal judge in California tossed a lawsuit brought against him by Daniels by misspelling her name, disparaging her appearance and threatening legal action against her and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti.

Daniels also mocked Trump by saying that she must've gotten to the portion of her book where she made fun of his penis while describing what it was like to have sex with him.

When Daniels confirmed the leaked story of her alleged affair with President Trump, she only "wanted to set the record straight and not be bullied", she told The Cut in an interview published Sunday.

She alleged a man approached her in a Las Vegas auto park in 2011 and threatened her after she agreed to talk about her experience with Trump in an interview.

A federal judge dismissed adult film star Stormy Daniels' defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump on Monday, finding a tweet by Trump to be constitutionally protected speech.

He wrote: "The court agrees with Mr Trump's argument because the tweet in question constitutes "rhetorical hyperbole" normally associated with politics and public discourse in the United States".

Trump denies he and Daniels had an affair.

The judge's ruling also entitles Trump to collect attorneys' fees from Daniels, but the amount that Daniels would need to pay will be determined later, Harder said.

The challenge came in response to Avenatti's suggestion last week that he and Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, compete in a mixed martial arts fight.

In August, Mr Cohen pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance laws during the 2016 presidential election over payments to two women who said they had sexual relationships with Mr Trump.

Ms Daniels lawyer, Mr Avenatti said: "Daniels' other claims against Trump and Cohen proceed unaffected".

"Bring everything you have, because we are going to demonstrate to the world what a complete shyster and liar you are", Avenatti tweeted minutes after Trump. She then released a sketch of the man.

The defamation claim is separate from another lawsuit that Daniels filed against Trump, which is continuing. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!"the president tweeted".
