President Donald Trump’s legal team asked a court on Monday for just shy of $800,000 in penalties and lawyers’ fees from adult-film star Stormy Daniels for the failed defamation lawsuit she brought against the president.
Attorney Charles Harder, who is part of Trump’s legal team, said his firm spent over 500 hours on the case, which resulted in almost $390,000 is legal fees for Trump.
Harder also requested in court that the judge award an equal amount in sanctions to combat against a “repeat filer or frivolous defamation cases.”
Harder is requesting $390,000 in legal fees and then an additional $390,000 in penalties, bringing the total to $780,000.
“This action is virtually unprecedented in American legal history,” Harder wrote in the court filings, adding that Daniels “not only brought a merit-less claim for defamation against the sitting president of the United States, but she also has engaged, along with her attorney, in massive national publicity.”
