Michael Avenatti, the man dubbed by Tucker Carlson as the “creepy porn lawyer” aka “CPL”, is back under the legal spotlight. The lawyer fired by Stormy Daniels is in legal boiling water yet again.
The Southern District of New York is set to charge Avenatti with trying to extort $15 million to $25 million from Nike, SDNY officials said Monday.
Michael Avenatti had tweeted about a press conference regarding a college basketball scandal that implicated the biggest names in the sport. The press conference was scheduled for Tuesday, March 26th, 2019 at 11am EST.
“Tmrw at 11 am ET, we will be holding a press conference to disclose a major high school/college basketball scandal perpetrated by @Nike that we have uncovered. This criminal conduct reaches the highest levels of Nike and involves some of the biggest names in college basketball,” Avenatti’s tweet read.
Steven Portnoy has since provided details regarding the alleged conduct.
