A California court ordered US President Donald Trump to pay $44,100 (~ Rs 32 lakh) of legal fees to porn actress Stormy Daniels, stemming from her legal battle in her attempt to invalidate a negotiated bribe that would stop her from discussing her sexual relationship with Trump a decade ago.

The Superior Court order in Los Angeles this week found that Daniels won her lawsuit against Trump over the agreement signed 11 days before the 2016 presidential election. As part of that agreement, the losing party would pay the attorneys' fees.

Michael Cohen, the president's personal attorney at the time, paid $ 130,000 to Daniels, who filed the lawsuit under her legal name Stephanie Clifford. After Trump's election, Daniels sued to invalidate the deal.

Trump and his supporters denied that the president knew about the payment for several years before Trump acknowledged it on Twitter in May 2018 and claimed that he reimbursed Cohen for the money paid to Daniels.

Daniels sued Trump in 2018 in order to free herself from the nondisclosure agreement. In response, the president of the USA and his legal team agreed not to sue or enforce the agreement. The lawsuit was dismissed and Daniels's claims were deemed moot, as the settlement had become unenforceable.

The California Superior Court decision on Monday was a response to Daniels's efforts to be reimbursed for costs and attorneys' fees related to the case.

In his decision, Broadbelt wrote that since Trump had reimbursed Cohen for the $ 130,000 payment to Clifford and that Trump's legal team had previously argued that a defamation lawsuit brought against the president by Clifford should be handled by an arbitrator of the NDA agreement, the president was effectively part of the agreement.

After her attorney announced the decision, Daniels tweeted: “Yup. Another win! #teamstormy”.

But not everything has been victorious for Daniels. She also sued Donald Trump for defamation after the president commented on Twitter that a man who she said threatened to keep quiet about her alleged affair in 2011 didn't exist. Trump also posted side-by-side photos of the composite sketch of the man who made the threats and Daniels' husband.
