It’s a win for Trump. The defamation lawsuit filed against Donald Trump by Michael Avenatti on behalf of Stormy Daniels has been tossed—and a judge is ordering her to pay nearly the president’s $294,000 legal tab. Daniels recently toldthe Daily Beast that the defamation suit filed by Avenatti was done against her wishes. The suit claimed that Trump has defamed the adult entertainment actress on his Twitter account. Well, regardless of the circumstances, it’s time to pay up, Stormy (via CNBC):

OH MAN

A federal judge just ordered Stormy Daniels to pay a whopping $293K to Trump for “attorneys’ fees, costs, and sanctions” after her defamation case was tossed out the window. pic.twitter.com/ep6YNV6KpD— Caleb Hull ???????? (@CalebJHull) December 11, 2018

A federal judge in California has ordered porn star Stormy Daniels to pay President Donald Trump more than $292,000 in his attorneys' fees and another $1,000 in sanctions in connection with her dismissed defamation suit against Trump.

Trump's lawyer Charles Harder said that the fees that Daniels was ordered to pay amount to 75 percent of Trump's legal feels in the case. And he said the sanctions are for Daniels having filed a "meritless" defamation action against Trump.

But Harder had asked U.S. District Judge S. James Otero earlier this month for almost $800,000 in attorneys' fees and penalties in the case.

"The court's order, along with the court's prior order dismissing Stormy Daniels' defamation case against the President, together constitute a total victory for the President, and a total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case," Harder said Tuesday.

[...]

Daniels's lawyer Michael Avenatti told CNBC in a text message that, "Harder and Trump deserve each other because they are both dishonest."

"They received less than one half what they asked for because the request was gross and excessive," Avenatti said. "Stormy will never have to pay a dime because they owe her over $1 million in attorney's fees and costs from the main NDA case, especially in light of Cohen's guilty plea to a felony.

Avenatti's text referenced Daniels's still-pending lawsuit against Trump that seeks damages in connection with a non-disclosure agreement, or NDA, that she has with the president.

Yeah, and speaking of paying bills, a judge recently told creepy porn lawyer Avenatti that he had to get on it with regards to his child support payments

So, how can WitchFinder Mueller be looking into a ‘campaign finance violation’ where the money paid for blackmail now has to be refunded?

Why would he owe Stormy for the NDA? She is the one that broke the contract. Guess it’s hard for such a women to keep her mouth shut much less her legs

Avenatti did not give her good advice. Maybe she should sue him or file a grievance.

If she files a malpractice suit against him he probably has professional liability insurance that would pay a claim of $393,000.

She won't do this, though. Her allegation that Avenatti filed the lawsuit without her knowledge is laughable on its face.

Now, if only Judge Kavanaugh would go after Christine Blasey Ford the way President Trump went after this flat-backer.

Hey, if the Muller team succeeds in the long shot of convicting Trump for campaign finance funneling to Stormy, Mr Trump can use the award to reimburse the funds. All good.

So according to CPL, Daniels breaks a non-disclosure agreement and Trump owes her damages?
