Default Stormy’s Lawyer Has Accounts Frozen By Judge

Things are getting so interesting these days, aren't they? Could karma be catching up with some people?

Quote:
A federal bankruptcy judge has targeted Avenatti’s laws firm for legal action. This judge issued a restraining order, which blocked the firm from spending any fees it collects, due to more than $10 million in unpaid debts and back taxes.

The order covers the bank accounts of the lawyer who represented Brett Kavanaugh’s latest accuser, and it concerns 54 cases and millions of dollars.

Judge Catherine Bauer, a federal U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge in Santa Anna, California, placed the injunction upon Avenatti’s firm.

This represented an extreme burden on the lawyer, who has seen his financial woes deepen, even as he has become a household name in the United States due to his involvement in various political intrigues and scandals.

Judge Bauer said that she didn’t want the lawyer to run out and buy a new house while he still owed more than $10 million in taxes and various unpaid debts.

Because of this, the lawyer for the former ‘adult film’ star, Stormy Daniels, would not be able to spend any money made in fees from 54 court cases, including the lawsuit that he filed against President Donald Trump on behalf of the ‘erotic actress.’

That case hoped to invalidate the nondisclosure agreement that Daniels said prevents her from speaking openly about her relationship with President Donald J. Trump.

The ‘starlet’ raised more than $580,000 via crowdfunding, which was meant to pay for her legal representation.

It is unclear whether the lawyer, or his law firm, received any payment from that pool of cash thus far.

His law firm, Eagan Avenatti, emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in March of this year, after it reached agreements to pay its creditors.

However, within months, the firm broke its promises to its creditors.

The firm missed a deadline in May to pay more than $440,000 to the Internal Revenue Service, which would have serviced their back taxes, penalties, and interest owed.

The law firm also missed a $2 million payment, which was personally guaranteed by attorney Avenatti, to Jason Frank, another attorney who used to work at the firm.

When Eagan Avenatti failed to make that payment, Frank sought, and won, a $10 million judgement against the law firm.

Ethics and morals. Apparently missing.

I'm not sure about anyone else's thoughts, but perhaps this supposed 'victim' is Avanett's way to clear this little financial misunderstanding up....

Why do I feel like I was just slimed?
