Please Gawd let this be the end of her 15 minutes!
Federal District Judge S. James Otero appears to be on the verge of dismissing Stormy Daniels’s defamation case against President Donald Trump.
During a hearing in Los Angeles Monday, the judge said that Trump’s tweet from April 2018 expressing skepticism about Daniels’ claim that a man approached her and threatened her in Las Vegas in 2011 appeared to be well within the bounds of free speech.
After hearing arguments from both sides, the judge said the tweet appeared to be political hyperbole and opinion protected by free speech.
What this was was a sneaky backdoor way to revive stale claims that I first saw used against Bill Cosby. Your client has a colorable claim against a celebrity but the statute of limitations has expired. So you call a news conference and have her declare that he raped her. If he (or his attorney) call your client a liar you sue for defamation.
Meanwhile, a different judge has decided that Bill Cosby is a sexual predator and we now hear that Michael Avenatti has locked his Twitter account. I picked a bad week to quit Oxycontin.
