Michael Avenatti’s law firm hit with $10 million bankruptcy judgment

Published

on

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.

Trump once again suggests the Central Park Five are guilty: ‘You have people on both sides of that’

Published

on

During a brief Q&A with the press on Tuesday, President Donald Trump once again appeared to suggest that he still believes the Central Park Five are guilty.

"You have people on both sides of that," he told reporters. "They admitted their guilt."

Trump has repeatedly tried to worm his way out of condemning racism with this sort of language — most infamously when he said there were "very fine people on both sides" of a neo-Nazi demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia.
