Stormy Daniels Allowed to Drop Defamation Claim Against Cohen

(Bloomberg) -- Stephanie Clifford, the adult movie actress better known as Stormy Daniels, won permission to drop her defamation claim against Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s former lawyer.

A federal judge in Los Angeles on Monday allowed Clifford to amend her lawsuit -- which challenges the validity of a 2016 non-disclosure agreement to keep quiet about her alleged fling with Trump -- and to drop the defamation claim.

The judge denied Cohen’s request to award him attorneys’ fees and costs.
