Stormy Daniels’ lawyer files renewed motion

 Washington, April 9: Stormy Daniels’ lawyer has filed a renewed motion to depose Dold Trump and his persol attorney Michael Cohen over a $130,000 payment made to the porn star as part of a nondisclosure agreement over her alleged affair with the US President. Michael Avetti, the adult-film star’s attorney, made the announcement on Twitter on Sunday, reports The Hill magazine. “Here is the renewed motion we just filed seeking to depose Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen, as well as an expedited jury trial,” Avetti tweeted with a link to the motion. A federal judge temporarily blocked Avetti’s attempt to depose Trump on April 5, ruling that the motion was “premature”. The new motion states that Daniels’ case “centres on a dispute concerning whether a settlement agreement, containing a mutual release and terms of non-disclosure, was ever formed between the parties”. It calls for a deposition for both Trump and Cohen of no more than two hours and requests various documents concerning the non-disclosure agreement. (IANS)
