Trump, Lawyers Request To Resolve Stormy Daniels Case Quietly
President Donald Trump and his lawyers reportedly filed a motion for private arbitration to resolve the Stephanie Clifford case privately.
President Donald Trump and his team of lawyers are reportedly trying to quietly resolve the case with adult film star Stephanie Clifford, according to court papers filed Monday.
Clifford — better known by her stage name, Stormy Daniels — claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006.
Then, in 2016, before Election Day, Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen paid Clifford $130,000 — allegedly to keep her from talking about the affair. Cohen set up a shell company called Essential Consultants to pay Clifford.
On Monday, Essential Consultants filed a motion for private arbitration. That would mean a third party, not a jury, would decide on the legal dispute, but only if the other parties agreed to abide by the decision.
Private arbitration seems like a good thing for Trump since it would keep quiet any sensitive information that could come up during a trial.
Clifford's attorney reportedly said they would "vigorously oppose the motion."
