A firm led by Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels in her suit against President Donald Trump, was hit Tuesday with a $10 million judgment by a U.S. bankruptcy court judge, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The firm, Eagan Avenatti, was ordered to pay $10 million to Jason Frank, a lawyer who used to work there, the Times reported.
Eagan Avenatti and Frank had previously agreed that the $10 million would be waived if Frank was paid a total of $4.85 million, according to court records.
But Frank asked for the full $10 million after failing to receive an initial $2 million installment toward the agreed amount when it was due May 14, according to records.
In a statement to CNBC, Avenatti said the Times' account of the case "nonsense."
