Porn Lawyer’s Law Firm Hit With $10 Million Judgment

Things just keep getting worse for Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing Stormy Daniels. First, he was found to owe $5 million in back taxes to the government, then his shady business deals were exposed, and now his law firm has been smacked with a $10 million judgment in U.S. Bankruptcy Court after he broke a promise to pay $2 million to a former colleague.

This is the lawyer that Democrats are counting on to take down President Donald Trump.

This major bombshell first reported by the Los Angeles Times shows that Judge Catherine Bauer of U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Santa Ana ordered the Eagen Avenatti law firm to pay Jason Frank, a lawyer who used to work at another law firm $10 million.

In order to settle the firm’s bankruptcy, Avenatti guaranteed that he would pay Frank $2 million last week, but after failing to follow through the court stepped in. Judge Bauer stated that the settlement is “what’s appropriate” at this point in the case.

But the $10 million judgment isn’t the only bad news that Avenatti received at the hearing.

The U.S. Justice Department revealed that Avenatti had defaulted on just over $440,000 in back taxes, penalties, and interest. Assistant U.S. Attorney Najah Shariff stated that the federal government would soon file a motion demanding the payment which Avenatti had failed to pay.

Avenatti had paid $1.5 million of the $2.4 million he owed, but missed a deadline for the final installment of $440,000 that he owed.

Despite being CNN’s darling, Michael Avenatti appears to have quite the shady past.
