Stormy Daniels to pay Trump.

The Hill's Avery Anapol has the story:

A federal judge on Tuesday ordered adult-film star Stormy Daniels to pay President Trump $293,052.33 in attorneys’ fees amid their ongoing legal battles.

U.S. District Judge James Otero ordered Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, to pay the fees in her defamation case against Trump, which Otero dismissed in October.

After the defamation case failed, Trump’s attorneys had requested that Daniels pay them $340,000 in legal fees.

Daniels is still suing Trump, and will likely appeal the case.
