President Trump’s legal party has officially requested the use of arbitration from a federal judge in order to settle the Stormy Daniels case.
Up until recently, his legal team was relatively silent on matters surrounding the licit dispute between Daniels (birth name: Stephanie Clifford) and Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal attorney.
Clifford signed a non-disclosure agreement to the payout of $130,000 at the height of the 2016 presidential election.
However, Clifford’s lawyers claim said agreement is null and void because the president never actually signed it, despite her still receiving payment.
Attorney Brent Blakely for both Cohen and Essential Consultants, the company used to allocate the funds to Clifford, had this to say:
“This motion seeks to enforce the arbitration provision in the Settlement Agreement, which was negotiated at arms’ length by the parties’ respective counsel, and pursuant to which Clifford accepted $130,000 as consideration. The strong policy favoring arbitration set forth by Congress in the Federal Arbitration Act (‘FAA’) dictates that this motion be granted, and that Clifford be compelled to arbitration, as she knowingly and voluntarily agreed to do.”
Currently, the lawsuit is being argued through the state due to Clifford filing her claim against Cohen at a state court in Los Angeles.
Blakely added, “[Federal law] dictates that this motion be granted, and that Clifford be compelled to arbitration, as she knowingly and voluntarily agreed to do.”
Ever heard of the claim that only desperate women get into porn?
Makes a lot of sense for such a woman to want out of a legal contract in order to become an even bigger sellout by cashing in on her experiences with President Trump.
Clifford’s team must want the case to be resolved in the public eye in order to gain mainstream sympathy. She must not realize the power at which the American legal system can hold her accountable by simply signing on the dotted line.
