Stormy Daniels defamation lawsuit against Trump dismissed

Tuesday 19:07 GMT

A defamation lawsuit filed by adult film actor Stormy Daniels against Donald Trump has been dismissed by a federal court, with the judge saying the tweet at the heart of the case was protected by free speech laws.

In a statement, Charles Harder, Trump’s personal attorney said “No amount of spin or commentary by Stormy Daniels or her lawyer, Mr Avenatti, can truthfully characterize today’s ruling in any way other than total victory for President Trump and total defeat for Stormy Daniels.”

Stormy Daniels defamation lawsuit against Trump dismissed because of the 1st amendment

Tuesday 19:07 GMT

A federal judge dismissed Stormy Daniels‘ defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump on Monday, saying the president made a “hyperbolic statement” against a political adversary when he tweeted about a composite sketch the porn actress’ lawyer released. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, sued Trump in April after he said a composite sketch of a man she said threatened her in 2011 to keep quiet about an alleged affair with the real estate mogul was a “con job.”

Judge throws out Stormy Daniels’s defamation lawsuit against Trump

Tuesday 19:07 GMT

A federal judge on Monday dismissed a lawsuit from adult film actress Stormy Daniels that claimed President Trump defamed her when he suggested she had lied about being threatened to keep quiet about their alleged relationship.

The now-dismissed suit has received less attention than two other cases pending against Trump — Daniels’s lawsuit seeking to void the nondisclosure agreement and a separate defamation claim by former Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos, who alleges that Trump sexually assaulted her in 2007 and argues that he defamed her when he suggested she was lying.
