(From ABC News)
A federal judge in California [S. James Otero, US District Court for the Central District of California] ordered adult film actress Stormy Daniels to pay President Donald Trump just under $300,000 in legal fees on Tuesday after her defamation suit against the president was thrown out in October. . . .
Earlier this year Daniels filed a defamation lawsuit against the president in New York, claiming Trump acted with “actual malice” and “reckless disregard for the truth” when he posted a tweet mocking her claim that she was threatened by an unknown man to keep silent about her alleged 2006 sexual encounter with Trump.
