Michael Avenatti – the attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels – has been a constant presence on CNN and MSNBC.
The left-wing attorney is popping up on friendly shows and constantly alleging forthcoming bombshells that will finish Donald Trump.
But Avenatti’s crusade against Trump may be over after some very bad news.
It turns out Avenatti may have some skeletons in his closet.
The Daily Caller has been digging into his business dealings and they have unearthed some troubling allegations.
Their latest report alleged two companies controlled by Avenatti failed to payout a $126,000 settlement to a victim of sex discrimination who claimed she was fired from her job for being pregnant.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Two companies controlled by Michael Avenatti have yet to pay the over $126,000 owed to a victim of sex discrimination case despite orders from a Washington state court, the victim’s lawyer told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Elizabeth Eno, a top-performing manager at Tully’s Coffee chain, was fired in July 2016 because she was pregnant, the court ruled last year, awarding her $120,000 from Tully’s two parent companies at the time: Global Baristas LLC and Global Baristas US, LLC.
But Eno has yet to see a single cent from the award, her attorney told TheDCNF on Thursday.
State records show that Global Baristas US, LLC is controlled by the similarly named Global Baristas LLC, which in turn is controlled by Avenatti, the lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels.
Avenatti claimed to know nothing about the money his companies apparently owe Eno. “I have no idea. I had nothing to do with the case,” Avenatti told TheDCNF on Thursday.
A judge ruled a summary order against the two companies in October 2017 to pay Eno $120,585 for wage losses, expectation damages, and pain and suffering related to her wrongful termination. Avenatti’s companies didn’t even send an attorney to court.
On February 8th, Eno’s attorney was granted an affidavit to garnish the settlement from the two companies’s bank accounts in KeyBank because the companies had yet pay out any of the judgement money to Eno. Because of interest and various filing fees, Eno’s judgement increased to $126,540.17.
KeyBank answered the writ of garnishment a week later on February 15. The bank reported no property or effects from Avenatti’s companies, writing “N/A,” court documents show.”
Avenatti’s constant appearances on CNN – he appeared twice as often as Donald Trump did at the height of the GOP primary campaign – has invited no scrutiny from so-called “mainstream” media outlets.
Liberal media outlets like CNN and MSNBC don’t want to dig into Avenatti’s past because he is feeding the fever dreams of network reporters and their audience that Donald Trump committed multiple acts of wrongdoing and may even be a criminal.
The Daily Caller has picked up the slack and is performing journalism at a time when so-called “mainstream” media outlets are indistinguishable from the “resistance.”
