According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Daniels’ motion for Expedited Jury Trial and for Limited Expedited Discovery was denied.
Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, tweeted about the denial, saying, “Here is an order from the Ct denying our motion as premature on procedural grounds. We will refile the motion as soon as DT, MC, and EC, LLC file their motion to compel arbitration seeking to hide the facts from public view. We expect this any day.”
Avenatti says there is some good news for his case in the order, saying that parts of it “do not bode well for the defendants and suggest that there is a strong likelihood that the Court will ultimately agree with our requests for discovery and a trial.”
Trump and his attorney, Michael Cohen, want the case argued in arbitration, as their agreement requires. Avenatti claims that agreement is no longer valid.
