An appeals court in California ruled that Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, must pay almost $122,000 of Donald Trump’s legal fees for her failed defamation lawsuit against him.
The court found that Trump’s lawyers spent over 183 hours reasonably on the appeal, but denied an additional request for $5,150 in fees that were not itemized. Meanwhile, Trump has been charged with a 34-count felony indictment in New York City, relating to allegations of falsifying business records to conceal extramarital affairs with Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal.

Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, alleged that she had a romantic involvement with Donald Trump in 2006 and was given $130,000 as part of a non-disclosure agreement.
She sued Trump for defamation when he dismissed her claims, but the case was thrown out in 2018. Daniels has been ordered to pay over $600,000 in legal fees, including $300,000 previously ordered. Daniels’ attorney, Clark Brewster, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
