Oh Yes, Trump Was Apparently Telling the Truth

 3/30/22 Law360:

Law360 (March 30, 2022, 9:28 PM EDT) -- Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday was awarded about $245,200 in fees for his former attorneys' work representing him in Stormy Daniels' failed d=1efamation case, yet the Ninth Circuit appellate commissioner refused to award him additional fees for opposing Daniels' petition for a writ of certiorari.

In an order, Commissioner Lisa B. Fitzgerald rejected Daniels' arguments that Trump employed too many attorneys, who billed him for too many hours, for fighting the adult film actress's appeal in her libel suit over Trump's tweet about a "nonexistent man."

"The reasonable fee determination is based on whether the requested hours for this particular legal team are justified for the work performed and the results achieved, not speculation as to how the case might have been staffed differently," Fitzgerald said Wednesday.

The fee award stems from 347 hours worked by six Harder LLP attorneys, according to the decision. Those attorneys have since left the case.
