Edit: Thread title changed to reflect removal of the case to US District Court.

A very interesting analysis by Seth Abramson:

Here's Michael Avenatti's bio from his website (goes by Michael Avenatti, Esq. :doh: )

http://avenatti.com/bio/

Some puffery going on, particularly about the awards bestowed by his law school, George Washington (eponymous award given to outstanding law student, Alumni Achievement award = $$$$ he gave to the school). Also, too, out of law school he went to work for an opposition research firm owned by Rahm (that's sure to be a line of attack by the Trumpsters). Nevertheless, his legal pedigree is nothing to sneeze at (graduated Order of the Coif and first in his class at GW). He's no Orly Taitz. :lol:

Avenatti was the lead attorney in a class action lawsuit against the NFL and Jerry Jones over the ticket sales for Super XLV in Dallas in 2011. Jerry Jones was so desperate to set the record for attendance at a Super Bowl that they installed temporary stands and sold 400 more tickets than there were seats. The plaintiffs prevailed in part and were awarded a total settlement of $76,000. The NFL was not found to have committed fraud.

https://www.nbcdfw.com/blogs/blue-star/ ... 66391.html

I wouldn't call it a huge win but any win against the NFL and Jerry Jones is pretty impressive.

I read Seth's thread. I think he might be missing the major issue that's going to be litigated in this case, which is going to involve arbitration. Specifically, the question is going to be whether Cohen can, through the LLC, force this case, which was filed against Trump, into arbitration, or if Trump will need to claim the benefit of the contract.

I have some questions. :geezertowel: I am not familiar with NDAs.
1. Is it common for NDAs to use pseudonyms?

2. How frequently is a third party an actual party to the NDA?

3. The document Cohen drafted has a choice of laws provision of California, Nevada and someplace else. It looks like Cohen has chosen California. What is the state of California law regarding a statute of frauds issue similar to the one in this case?

4. In Texas, arbitration clauses are difficult to bust (although I have). Is California law as tough in forcing people to arbitration in nearly every circumstance?

5. Do you think Cohen will remove this case to federal court?

That's it. For now.

TIA

I don't think I'm being too tin foil HATJ when I say there are a significant number of legitimate scandals Trump will be happy the porn star suit is drawing attention away from. And if this gets settled out of court one condition Stormy will be made to agree to is to exaggerate the size of Trump's penis in her tell all book.

Instead of the word "relationship" the words "repeatedly having sex" should be used instead.

Mike Avernatti was on CNN with Chris Cuomo yesterday. I thought he handled himself very well.

From the article:
Jan Baran, a former general counsel to the Republican National Committee, said the facts so far do not support the notion that the payment to Ms. Clifford was “indisputably directly for the campaign itself.” It could have simply been a personal matter, he said, of Mr. Trump wishing to keep a secret from his wife.
How many hundreds of secrets got hidden?

Which secret he was not concerned about for the prior 12 or so years. And a secret that required forming a new LLC and which required the use of aliases. And a secret which Trump now claims never happened. Yeah, I really, really buy that argument.

I just noticed your tag about Anita Hill. Ditto, and a big reason why Joe Biden will never get my vote for president (in the primaries).
