Stormy Daniels ordered to pay Trump $300,000

Adult film star Stormy Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, has lost her appeal in a defamation suit against former president Donald Trump. A federal appeals court upheld a lower court’s ruling that she pay Trump $300,000 for attorney’s fees, the Huff Post reported. On Friday, March 18, the decision was made by the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. It states it had no jurisdiction over Daniels’ appeal of the attorneys’ fees issue because she failed to file a notice of appeal within a 30-day deadline of a federal judge granting the fees to Trump, CNBC reported.

“The lawsuit was a purely political stunt that never should have started or allowed to happen,” Trump said after the ruling, Unilad reported. “And I am pleased that my lawyers were able to bring it to a successful conclusion after the court fully rejected her appeal.”

In a tweet on Monday, Daniels wrote: “I will go to jail before I pay a penny.”
