A federal judge in California has ordered porn star Stormy Daniels to pay President Donald Trump more than $293,000 in his attorneys’ fees and another $1,000 in sanctions in connection with her dismissed defamation suit against Trump.

Trump’s lawyer Charles Harder said that the fees that Daniels was ordered to pay amount to 75 percent of Trump’s legal fees in the case. He said the sanctions are for Daniels having filed a “meritless” defamation action against Trump.

But Harder had asked U.S. District Judge S. James Otero earlier this month for almost $800,000 in attorneys’ fees and penalties in the case.

“The court’s order, along with the court’s prior order dismissing Stormy Daniels’ defamation case against the President, together constitute a total victory for the President, and a total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case,” Harder said Tuesday.
