A Judge has ordered Stormy Daniels to pay Donald Trump’s legal fees to the tune of $293,000.

U.S. District Judge James Otero ordered Daniels to pay the legal fees on Tuesday after dismissing her defamation case against Trump in October.

According to The Hill, President Trump’s legal team had initially requested Daniels pay them $340,000 in legal fees after the case was thrown out, however Judge Otero ordered Daniels to pay seventy-five percent of his legal fees, plus $1,000 in sanctions writing Trump’s legal team had spent “excessive” time on the case.

“The U.S. District Court today ordered Stormy Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford) to pay President Trump $292,052.33 to reimburse his attorneys’ fees (75% of his total legal bill), plus an additional $1,000 in sanctions to punish Daniels for having filed a meritless lawsuit against the President designed to chill his free speech rights,” Charles J. Harder, Trump’s lawyer said in a statement. “The court’s order, along with the court’s prior order dismissing Stormy Daniels’ defamation case against the President, together constitute a total victory for the President, and a total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case.”
