Pay Up: Porn Lawyer Avenatti Slapped With Multi-Million Dollar Judgment, Evicted From Law Offices

He was gunning for the presidency. He made the rounds on television. He scooped up some clients that boosted his profile, both aimed at damaging President Trump. Michael Avenatti, aka creepy porn lawyer, represented adult actress Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit that went to crap. He also represented an unhinged woman named Julie Swetnick, one of the women who lobbed sexual misconduct allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. As with all of the allegations, they lacked evidence or witnesses. The story is just crap, folks. She alleged that Kavanaugh was part of a gang rape ring in high school. Yet, she kept going to these parties where these alleged attacks happened? Yes—and she was also college-aged hanging with high school kids, supposedly saw these events, and then didn’t tell anyone and went back nine more times. It’s straight trash. Period.

Well, he lost that fight too. Kavanaugh is now on the Supreme Court. Oh, and Avenatti has more losses. He has to pay a former colleague millions, and he can no longer use his law offices. They’ve been evicted for not paying rent for four months (via LA Times):

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for porn actress Stormy Daniels, was hit with a personal judgment of $4.85 million Monday for his failure to pay a debt to a former colleague at his longtime Newport Beach firm.

Less than an hour after his defeat in the Los Angeles lawsuit, Avenatti suffered another setback at a trial in Orange County: The Irvine Co. won a court order evicting him and his staff from their offices because the firm, Eagan Avenatti, skipped the last four months of rent.

The twin blows came as Avenatti was heading to New Hampshire for his third visit to the state that kicks off the 2020 presidential primaries. The celebrity lawyer is exploring a run for the Democratic nomination. His troubled financial history could emerge as a significant campaign issue if he joins the race.

The personal judgment against Avenatti by Judge Dennis J. Landin in Superior Court in Los Angeles was his latest in a series of courtroom losses in a protracted dispute with Jason Frank, the former colleague.

Eagan Avenatti emerged from federal bankruptcy protection in March after Avenatti promised that it would pay millions of dollars to Frank and other creditors, including the Internal Revenue Service. It has defaulted on nearly every payment that was due.

Talk about a massive blow. What a string of losses. I think the NY Giants are the only ones with more losses than this calamity. Avenatti won’t be president. He’s an anti-Trump lawyer, who keeps losing. Basta!
