The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals mandated on Tuesday that Stormy Daniels pay former President Donald Trump an extra $121,972.56 to cover legal costs associated with her lawsuit against him.
According to the Texas Citizens Participation Act, the court granted Donald J. Trump’s appeal attorneys’ costs, according to the order. “The court referred the determination of an acceptable sum to the appellate commissioner.” Trump had asked for the precise sum the court had decided to pay Harder LLP and the Dhillon Law Group for their 183.35 hours of work.
Eric Trump, the president’s son, tweeted the order’s announcement “BREAKING!!! The 9th Circuit just granted Trump $121,962.56 in Stormy Daniels’ legal fees. just released the order. She owes him an additional $500k on top of this.”
Fox hosts start laughing when they get the news that the Ninth Circuit awarded Trump $121k in attorney fees from Stormy Daniels as he was being arraigned.
