Federal judge issues 90-day stay in Stormy Daniels suit against Michael Cohen

A federal judge on Friday put Stormy Daniels’ lawsuit against President Donald Trump and his longtime personal lawyer on hold for 90 days due to the ongoing criminal investigation into that lawyer, Michael Cohen.

“While it is undeniable that Plaintiff has a valid interest in the prompt resolution of her claims, where Mr. Cohen’s Fifth Amendment rights are heavily implicated and the potential impact on the criminal investigation substantial, Plaintiff’s interests do not outweigh the necessity of a stay,” US District Judge James Otero wrote in an order granting a stay of the case.
