Friday, December 8

Former President Donald Trump did not have a great day Tuesday, having been booked and arraigned in Manhattan on 34 felony counts allegedly related to ‘hush money’ payments, one of which was to adult film star Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

But before the day’s end, Trump did get some good news — and lo and behold, it relates to Daniels.

Trump received a favorable ruling from the U.S. 9th Circuit Court, which ordered Daniels to pay him $121,962.56 in attorney fees. This judgment is a setback for Daniels, who already owes Trump about $500,000 from a previous lawsuit.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is among the 13 federal appellate courts in the United States. It is known to be the most extensive and one of the most progressive federal appellate courts in the country. The court hears a broad range of cases, including appeals relating to civil and criminal matters, as well as cases involving constitutional and administrative law.

The ruling was announced on Twitter by Trump’s sons, Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr.
