Michael Avenatti’s law firm hit with $10 million bankruptcy judgment
Michael Avenatti is the attorney representing Stephanie Clifford, better known by her stage name, Stormy Daniels.

Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti has been hit with a multi-million dollar bankruptcy judgment — and he's been accused of defaulting on back taxes as well.


The Los Angeles Times' Michael Finnegan reported Tuesday that Avenatti's firm has been charged a $10 million judgment in U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

Finnegan reported last week that Avenatti was also late on a $2 million installment of a $4.85 million debt he owes to his former law partner, Jason Frank.

Judge Catherine Bauer ordered the Eagan Avenatti law firm to pay the $10 million to Frank on Tuesday.

Avenatti described the story as "nonsense" on Twitter.

"Completely different law firm - no ties to Daniels case. Irrelevant. Over blown. Sensational reporting at its finest. Check the facts next time please and report accurately," he tweeted.

According to Avenatti's website, he co-founded Eagan Avenatti in 2007.
