via A federal judge just delivered a setback to Stormy Daniels in her quest to depose Trump – AOL News

A federal judge turned down a request on Thursday from porn star Stormy Daniels’ lawyer to depose President Donald Trump as part of her lawsuit against him over a 2016 hush agreement.

Lawyer Michael Avenatti said that he would refile the motion to seek Trump’s testimony under oath, which Judge S. James Otero denied on procedural grounds, calling it “premature.”

Otero is waiting for Trump and his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to file a petition to send the case into private arbitration, rather than a public federal trial — something they’ve stated they’ll do.
