A federal judge could soon dismiss Stormy Daniels’ lawsuit against President Trump, or so he indicated in court. At a hearing Tuesday afternoon, Judge S. James Otero didn’t issue a ruling but seemed willing to toss the adult-film star’s case—which was filed in March 2018 and sought to invalidate a “hush agreement” she inked with Trump and his former attorney, Michael Cohen, in the run-up to the 2016 election. Both men have agreed to rescind the nondisclosure agreement, which led to Cohen paying Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her silence about her alleged romp with Trump a decade before. “It seems you’ve achieved… what you sought to achieve,” Otero said, according to the AP. After the hearing, Avenatti told reporters: “They admitted what we said all along. So any attempt by anyone to claim that this is not a victory for Stormy Daniels is completely bogus and nonsense and dishonest.” Last month, Otero ordered Daniels to pay $293,000 in attorney’s fees for her failed defamation case against Trump.
