The president of the United States, Donald trump, has received the order to pay $ 44,100 to the porn film actress Stormy daniels for her legal battle to cancel a confidentiality agreement (NDA) to keep her quiet about her alleged relationship with the president a decade ago.

The Superior Court order of The Angels determined that Daniels won the lawsuit against Trump over the agreement that was signed 11 days before the 2016 presidential election. As part of that agreement, the losing party would pay the attorneys’ fees.

The president’s personal attorney at the time, Michael Cohen, paid $ 130,000 to Daniels, who filed suit under his legal name Stephanie clifford. After Trump’s election, Daniels sued the president to overturn the deal.

Trump and his supporters denied that the president knew of the payment for several years before he acknowledged it on Twitter in May 2018 and said he would refund Cohen the money paid to Daniels. Daniels’ lawsuit over the non-confidentiality agreement was dismissed before going to trial or to reach an agreement because the parties were no longer calm.

Trump’s attorneys said that Daniels had not won the case and therefore was not entitled to attorney’s fees, but the judge Robert Broadbelt III disagreed with his decision on Monday, so Daniels’ lawyers announced the decision on their Twitter account writing: “Yes. Another victory ”.

But not all have been victories for Stormy daniels. The actress also sued Trump for defamation after comments the president made on Twitter that a man, according to her, threatened to keep quiet about her alleged affair in 2011, was “non-existent.” Trump posted photos of the composite sketch of the man who made the threats and Daniels’ husband.

The defamation lawsuit was dismissed and Daniels is appealing the decision and the order to pay Trump nearly $ 300,000 in legal fees. A judge in that case ruled that Trump’s statements on Twitter were protected by the First Amendment.

Since Trump’s election, Daniels has remained in the adult entertainment industry using his fame to promote appearances at strip clubs and shows.

Meanwhile, Cohen pleaded guilty to the campaign finance charges and lying to Congress and was sentenced to three years in prison in 2018. In July 2020 a federal judge ordered the release of Michael Cohen, who continues his sentence from his home on the Upper East Side in Manhattan.
