Washington DC [United States] May 1 (ANI): Adult film actor Stormy Daniels, who publicly claimed a 2006 sexual encounter with United States President Donald Trump, has filed a defamation suit against him, escalating the ongoing legal battle.
"By calling the incident a 'con job,' Mr. Trump's statement would be understood to state that Ms. Clifford was fabricating the crime and the existence of the assailant, both of which are prohibited under New York law, as well as the law of numerous other states," CNN reported, Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, as writing in the lawsuit.
The suit is separate from another lawsuit in which Daniels is suing Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen.
California judge James Otero has temporarily put a hold on Daniels' lawsuit against Trump and his personal attorney Michael Cohen for 90 days.
She has claimed that Cohen orchestrated a payment to keep her quiet during the election.
The adult star said the deal is not valid because the US President "never signed it himself"(ANI)
